Wow...

I didn't even know this existed. We were visiting the River Walk area and came upon the monument. We were impressed by the size and the art of this creation. Wonderful!

We stumbled on the land run statues while walking the entire Bricktown canal. The monument is tucked into a small hill at the end of the canal near Bass Pro Shop. It is quite impressive and worth the walk down from the main drag of Bricktown. I was disappointed that there was not more descriptive information to go with the... More

This amazing sculpture pays homage to those events and conveys the excitement, emotions, fears, and feeling of hope that must of been present during those times.

Wow, what an artistic endeavor to create this beautiful, big sculpture, capturing the excitement of the 1889 land rush. A very unique outdoor art project.

This is a neat little area and the statues are huge and I found them to be powerful images. A man riding a horse and grabbing for his hat make it look so real. Pretty landscaping make it a free and interesting stop.

I love the statues,bridges and waterfall. Wonderful place to take pictures in the warmer months. Part of the water canal comes thru this park and you see a water taxi from time to time. Mallards nest at the waters edge and it is always wonderful to see the duck family floating in the canal. Only draw back is if you... More

I was in OKC for a professional meeting and we had some extra time to explore this place. I went out to explore this place and it was a lot of fun and very safe! OKC has a "riverwalk" in the Bricktown area. There is also a free shuttle bus that takes you around Bricktown.The whole area is really quaint.... More
