Strolling through history

This monument is amazing. If you take the time, read all of the plaques at each top, you will feel like you are taking a walk through key parts of Oklahoma history.

Very cool outdoor display depicting the history of the Oklahoma Land Run. Feel swept away into history as you walk among the oversized monuments. You can almost hear the shouting between the men! Love this place and it's beautifully done. Perfect for all ages!

This enormous monument is a great tribute to Oklahoma history and when you see it you can imagine the life of a pioneer.

Like many we walk to these statues while we walk the canal. They are huge and really detailed. I still cant believe Bricktown is a go to place. I remember it was a side of town that you prayed not to break down in. Love seeing all the changes and I look forward to seeing the upcoming rapid area.

Along and across the Brickyard canal, this massing of figurative sculptures is astoundingly beautiful. You really get the feeling of the Sooners rushing for the chance to start a new life. I think if you didn't know the history, it might be a little obscure, so if you're going to go, take five minutes to read about the land rush... More

The monument is a beautiful rendition of the what the land run must have looked like. Very impressed with the stream crossing, and the garden like area.

This was a beautiful exhibit, but am out-of-towner would have difficulty understanding the historical significance without some previous research. I did not see any brochures of plaques to explain it.

This momument was huge and lots of history I like how the river walk cut thru the middle gives the illusion of them running thru it.

The display is nice I just wish it was not located in Oklahoma. I personally feel it's a slap in the face to Native people here that slowly lost thier lands after being forced to move to Oklahoma from thier tribes lands. I'm sure all don't agree with this but it's how I feel.

OKC is my adopted home I am from Tennessee originally. This was great to see the first time. It really brings the history of the land run to life (big life). Every time someone visits us from other states we always take them to the Memorial and the Land Run Monument.
