“over 100 individual bronze sculptures”

The Park of bronze sculptures begins with a wagon train heading west, causing a heard of bison to stampede. The bison emerge onto Dodge Street where they flush a flock of Canada geese. The geese take flight and conclude with their flying into the First National Tower. Together, Pioneer Courage and Spirit of Nebraska's Wilderness parks consist of more than 100 individual bronze pieces integrated within an urban environment that covers more than six city blocks. Individual sculpture pieces are 1.25 times life size and range in weight from 400 pounds to six tons. Accessible.

It's a pretty cool landmark. Definitely something to stop and take pictures of. You can park nearby, too.

There were way more statues than I anticipated. I thought we would spend 5 minutes there but we ended up wandering around for 45 min. It was not busy when we went in July and there was ample parking. You do have to pay a meter but it was not expensive.

Agreed! Lots of fun photo poses with this one. Tells a story while walking through the park. The idea is that you get a sense of what the pioneer movement was like through what is now Nebraska.
