    A very impressive monument/park.
    This landmark is just south of Bricktown. It contains several life-like statues depicting the land run of 1899. These statues are very impressive, very detailed, and they appear to depict what the land run would have looked like back then. The artwork is excellent, IMO. There are plenty of places to sit. This area is the turnaround area for the canal boats from Bricktown. Also, great views of Devon Center. Not sure there are any restrooms, but otherwise it is excellent.

    Very impressive
    There are several larger-than-life statues depicting the settlers of the Oklahoma land rush. The statues do a great job of portraying what must have been a hectic rush to get some of the last free land in the United States west. There is no admission cost to see the monument & it is there to look at 24/7. Anyone interested in western history & art need to visit.

    Beautiful
    This is a stunning, somber monument. To read the plaques and understand what happened is very sobering. There was so much thought put into this monument, the way it was designed, the intricacy and detail in the sculpture itself, etc. It’s hard to put into words the feels I had there but this is a quick 15-30 min stop but I highly recommend making the stop.

    Land Rush statues
    It is the most awesome outdoor art to visit. The black copper statues are huge. The artwork makes you feel like you are actually looking at the land rush happen. We visited it 5 years ago. It is still as awesome as it was the first time we visited.

To fully appreciate this monument, one should probably have some idea of how the land runs in Oklahoma were held and how that led to statehood in 1907.

The monument is beautifully done and grander than we expected to see. It does cross the canal and one can see it all by being on both sides. There is a sidewalk that takes you from one side to the other.

On the Water Taxi, we learned the figure of a man with the first set of horses, and ready to enter the water, is the figure of the artist of this monument. He wanted to be remembered for being a part of history.

So, if you really want to appreciate the history of how events led up to Oklahoma statehood, this monument, along with several stones and such with writing on them that tell of this event, this is a must see monument.

We found the best way to get there was going in by the Pro Shop and finding a road to the monument. We heard several people in Bricktown that day confused as to how to get to it.

With the construction in OK City, driving about can be a pain around the Bricktown area, but this stop is worth it. This is a nice set of monuments noting the land rushes of Oklahoma. The detail is amazing, and there are lots of hidden jokes and details that can take hours to explore. The park they are in is nice with running water. A good break from a city.

This monument is filled with bigger than life sculptures, which gives you a feeling of almost being there watching when the land run took place in real life. I wish they would have had a booth with literature or plaques detailing more information about the land run. Maybe they assume we can all look it up on wikipedia.

I mapped the location in my phone and let it guide me. I was surprised at where it was located. At the end of a parking lot? I don't see anything! And then I caught a glimpse. It is magnificent. We walked around and admired all the details of this gigantic bronze piece. The history of the land run is sad to me but this artwork is amazing. I had to look up the artist. I wondered how long it took to do each piece. I wondered how does one even cast bronze. That is good art. When it makes you want to know about the artist, the process, etc. To some, this may be just some big hunk of art they never really notice. To others like me, it feels criminal that something so magnificent is hidden like this. It deserves to be showcased in a high traffic area. (I marked travelled as solo because there's no family option w/o children. Some of us drive around our senior parents. That's family last time I checked.)

These larger than life statues depict a snapshot in time of the land run with horses, riders, wagons, families, dogs, and incredible detail. It is so impressive to see up close. Pull into the Bass Pro parking lot and drive to the back for easy access.

Wow. They really did a FABULOUS job of not only the sculpture work but the presentation of the park surrounding it. I thought it was going to be a short 5 minute stop - I was very wrong. There was so much detailing - even the dog and the rabbit was included. Truly magnificent!!

This was a neat stop on a road trip through the area. There are several signs to read about the Land Run, and the statues are so large and detailed.
To get to it, head toward Bass Pro Shop, then take the street that goes under the Interstate to the parking lot (it's free). Then it's a very short walk to the monument (also free).
