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

A must see in Oklahoma City if you love History and Art/Monuments. The size of the horses amazed me a very well done monument, and its free. Behind the Bass Pro.

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

to look up where my 3 Great Grandfather had participated in the Land Run. Of course, he most likely did not resemble any of these figures in the monument but it was very moving to see not only this artist rendition of the Land Run but also to see the peaceful physical setting that was used to showcase it. My... More

What a really beautiful monument to celebrate the beginnings of the state of Oklahoma! Great for pictures and for children. Larger than life monument is very detailed.

This series of larger than life bronze sculptures depicts the Oklahoma Land Run. It's a clever arrangement of buckboard wagons, riders on horseback, dogs, etc. all running to see if they can stake a piece off land. The monument straddles part of the canal. It's just south of the Bass Pro Shop parking lot, on the east side of the... More

My wife and I stopped here to see this awesome monument to the settlement of part of Oklahoma. If you wish to see the monument, put the Bass Pro Shop OKC into your GPS. Once at Bass Pro, head south past the store, under the bridge being built, then to the SW corner of the parking lot. These are impressive... More

We have taken the few people who have visited us since we have moved to OKC to the land run monument and it's more of a joke for us. We make them believe that it's going to be this great thing to visit and then we wait to see their reaction. It's kind of neat to go look at, but... More

To see this upclose and personal you should take the cruise on the canal. Not only will you get a birds eye view but the narration from the tour operator will help give you a quick history lesson and point out a few things that perhaps you wouldn't know if you simply went minus the boat ride. While it can... More
