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.

We were thrilled to hear about the growth of downtown and the things that are in the works. Did not know that these wonderful statues were there and they were so beautiful. A must see when you visit Oklahoma!!

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

There were 7 land runs in present day Oklahoma, the first one on April 22, 1889. 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. The sculpture consists of approximately 45 pieces of riders on horses and wagons. Very realistic and conveys great... More
