Pioneer Courage Park is a great free walk through park with statues depicting the wagon trains going across the country. Nicely laid out walk ways around the statues. Must see if in the downtown area.

We didn’t expect to find such fantastic sculptures in downtown Omaha. The are larger than life images of a wagon train in amazing detail. I had to check that the wagons were in fact bronze and not wood! Simply wonderful.
