Very impressive, a little hard to find because of construction but worth the search! Go through the Bass Pro Shop parking area, past the fence where it looks like construction is to the parking area for the park. Pretty cool!

As a fairly recent Oklahoma resident, I didn't know too much about how the state began. This wonderful, informative exhibit really helped. The sculptures are huge and absolutely amazing. There are some informational plaques, but unfortunately they can be a bit difficult to read. I was fascinated by the exhibit and made the effort to read them all. As mentioned... More

The Centennial Land Run Monument can be tricky to find, but if you see Bass Pro Shop you are really close-just go to the parking lot at the south side, by the canal. This is an absolutely amazing sculpture, and it sure is getting big. I read at one time that when finished it will be the largest freestanding bronze... More

The easiest way to find this very impressive monument is to go to the Bass Pro parking lot and drive on through it until the parking lot ends. It is right on the end of the Riverwalk area near Bricktown. The monument is a long string of statues depicting settlers rushing into Oklahoma to grab their free piece of land... More

A moment frozen in time...the start of the land rush. This series of sculptures shows the madness as the "Boomers" headed out for their share of free land. Take time to appreciate the details in each of the sculptures; you'll be amazed and delighted. Even the dog seems like he's ready to play fetch.

I had no idea we would be gliding straight through a group of people and horses galloping through the water on their way to claim land in 1889. We were on the Bricktown boat cruise and came upon the 30+ gigantic bronze figures frozen in time: wagons, horses, men carrying flags, mouths open, arms flaying, ...the artist has captured the...

We had to off road our stroller to find the monument but it was worth it. We found out more about the monument when we rode the water taxi later in the day. Excited to see it grow over the years!

We were staying in OKC for the night and happened to locate this hidden gem. You have to go through the Bass Pro Shops parking lot to get there but it is definitely worth the inconvenience. There is such incredible detail in this monument with the facial expressions of the people, the panting of the horses, even hoof prints leading... More

We only saw the monument during our two tours of the canal on a water taxi, but our tour guides were so knowledgeable and we learned so much about it from them! Would like to go back and see it up close.
