I was ambivalent about this. On the one hand, as artwork, the statues are magnificent. They look lifelike, with a lot of detail in the carving. The whole group conveys an impression of speed, urgency and the desire to own some land. But on the other hand, this commemorates land taken away from the native americans. Perhaps the state needs...

This is an amazing display to see. It is off the beat and path so you have to put it on your list of things to see. Take the Bricktown river walk all the way to the south end and there it is. They keep adding to it so if you haven't seen it in a while make the walk.

These very large bronze sculptures are of the Land Run of 1889. Many Oklahoma's in central Oklahoma think of this era as the beginning of history for them. Take the kids and make a photo. This is in Bricktown, the entertainment district of OKC.

Everyone should walk through the art work, canal, grassy areas. Take the river boat there, visit the boat areas and Bricktown!

The bronze statues depicting the Oklahoma Land Run are incredible. From the huge wagon with horses all the way down to the little rabbit, the statues are intricately carved and running across the canal makes them look life-like. We take all out of state visitors to see it. It's just a short walk down the canal from all the shopping,... More

These magnificent sculptures are so very impressive. But they are behind industrial buildings and alongside highway construction. It is hard to get to and has been designed to keep you away from the other-side of the canal except perhaps for a fee. And it feels a little unsafe back there.

The monument is impressively large. Each sculpture has amazing detail. No information or plaques are present to explain or give a historical telling of the sculpture. Located just behind the bass pro shops parking lot.

We were so honored to witness the planting of another addition to the Land Run Monument. It is mind boggling. Go stand next to a carriage. Look at their faces. look at the horses hooves. Just WOW!

This park was beautifully created and the bronze statues were bigger than life. They had boat tours available. The walk was very romantic and relaxing.
