The statue is very well done, and is in a beautiful setting along Auditorium Shores on the South side of Lady Bird Lake. This is very fitting, since Stevie Ray Vaughn is from the south side of Dallas (Oak Cliff). Take a few minutes to seek out the statue if you are a fan, or just stop by if you... More

The statue is along a nice walk along the river. My husband is a huge Stevie fan and really enjoyed seeing the statue. Not much else there.

This statue is cool to see. The "shadow" is great. I am not surprised that it is a popular spot for tourists.

I've walked by the statue honoring an awesome musician while walking around Towne Lake. Someone had put flowers in his hand the first day. Go check this out.

The statue wasn't hard to find and the park it's in is very clean and well kept. I love the river in the background of this statue.
