We spent most of our day in Omaha walking around the parks, which ironically and unfortunately share the same space as all of their business district’s ugly corporate buildings. At least they know that a good investment in fountains and nice animal sculptures help distract one from the fact that they’re surrounded by banks and a Hilton hotel. A bank I refuse to name funded this and use it as a means to advertise and garner some good PR.
This stampede of buffalo and flock of geese taking flight begins on Capitol Ave in an homage to the early settlers, Pioneer Courage Park. There are a lot of horses and bulls being used as transportation and wasn’t all that interesting to us. If you follow the animals, though, they take you to the fountain where the Canada goose are flying away, Spirit of Nebraska’s Wilderness Park. Altogether, these make up the largest installation of bronze and stainless steel art in America, and the second or third in the world. We thought it was gorgeous.
