I don't work for the OKC Chamber, but from some of my reviews of their attractions one would think I do. This is another site not to be missed. Even if you know little about the Land Run or its history, you will be absolutely awed at the size and the work that went into creating this monument. Bigger than... More

I had no idea this was behind my hotel. Really cool, life size sculptures. The entire area is a nice place to walk. Enjoy the canal. Walk out to the river. Very nice.

Amazing detail in the larger-than-life bronze sculptures depicting the Oklahoma land run of 1889! The number of pieces in the exhibits continues to grown - many pieces to enjoy! Very life-like/realistic!

We were able to see these statues for the first time while on the bricktown river boat ride. This statue is highly detailed and HUGE. Definately worth a visit.

Born and raised in OK I have a great love for our history. If you go to this monument when its quiet and listen, ( and use your imagination) you can hear the rumble of the wagon, the beating of the horses hooves, the encourging yells of the riders to their mounts and feel the excitment of the race. Its... More

This is a wonderful way to show people how they traveled in covered wagons back in the day, the sculptures are really very descriptive and show all kinds of different angles of life.

A very sentimental area. It makes one question where we're the Hispanic and other nationality of people.

This is a wonderful park with large sculptures memorializing the famous Oklahoma Territory Land Rush of 1898, when the US government opened up 2 million acres to anyone who could stake a claim on a first come basis. It was basically a mad scramble to grab a parcel of land for settlers. The statues show all kinds of people and... More
