Chisholm Trail Park - Park City, Kansas
Following the Civil War, the Chisholm Trail was used to herd cattle from Texas to Abilene, Kansas where they could be shipped by train to the cities in the eastern United States. This small park in Park City, Kansas commemorates the Chisholm Trail with an historic marker and a sculpture by the metal artist, Frank Jensen. Frank is the mostly retired artist who has Henry's Sculpture Hill in the nearby community of Augusta.
The metal plate sculpture depicts a cowboy on horseback, hearding two longhorn cattle.
Chisholm Trail Park is just a couple of hundred feet east of I-125 on 61st Streeet North. Just across the street from the Spangles Restaurant at 1023 East 61st Street North.
