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.

CORRECT ADDRESS: 200 Bass Pro Drive. Go through the Bass Pro parking lot, past the Interstate construction, and to the back, right hand corner of the parking lot. Wonderful statues depicting nor of the Oklahoma land runs. We'll worth seeing.

This art work really brought to life what the Sooners arrival would have looked & felt like! My children, 12 & 9, were very impressed!

It was worth negotiating the digging work and puddles in the surrounding area to walk to this sculpture. This larger-than-life sculpture is truly magnificent – the detail is astounding, and you can almost feel it come alive. The park is a work-in-progress, however is already a must-visit for this brilliantly designed and laid out monument.

I was expecting just one monument but this is a sculpture that almost comes to life! The statues of the horses and wagons are pretty big and form a line crossing the river. I spent longer than expected there and took many photos. It is a superb piece of work and something you should not miss if in Oklahoma City.

This is a beautiful park with a canal (canal rides available too), beautiful grounds, and the statuary depicting the Sooners/Boomers. It is a tremendous place to spend lunch and bring a little picnic. It also has a nice walking path to work off the lunch. If you are using a GPS, place the address for Bass Pro Shops and then...
