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.

As pioneer sculpture goes, I think that this is the best in the country. A park in downtown Omaha, it is a wonderful place to visit. The detail on the sculpture is fantastic.

Stunning place, wonderful attention to detail. I would definitely recommend that you park up and spend an hour or so discovering all of these beautiful statues from the large wagons to the tiny birds on the lamps a couple of blocks over

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.

We happened on Pioneer Courage Park just driving around. We were able to park along the street easily, paying 50 cents at the meter to give us about 25 minutes to walk around the park. The sculptures capture wonderful expressions of the hard work and...More

Pioneer Courage Park is an easy walk from downtown or from TD Ameritrade Park. It is a free activity and doesn't take much time to view. The larger than life sculptures accurately depict what it would be like to be a pioneer in a covered...More

A pleasant walk over several city blocks brings you from the 1800's to modern times. Take time to find the "buffalo corner", the calf, the geese on the lamp posts and inside the First National Bank atrium. This is one of the largest sculptures in...More
