Pioneer Plaza


Just outside the front door of the Kay Bailey Hutchison Convention Center is Pioneer Plaza, commemorating the trails that brought settlers to Dallas and cattle to market. This location features native plants and trees, a flowering stream and a larger-than-life bronze cattle drive. Each bronze piece – there are 49 longhorn cattle in all, herded by 3 cowboys on horses – was created by artist Robert Summers of Glen Rose, Texas. Located on just over four acres between the historic Pioneer Cemetery and the Convention Center, the plaza offers a venue with Texas flair, perfect for outdoor event and meal functions. The Convention Center’s planning specialists can bring your crowd to its feet by incorporating this exciting space into your event.
