This is a really big monument hidden behind all the shopping that is connected to the river walk. The monument reminds me a lot of the one in downtown Dallas.

t's a little difficult to describe a land run. Therefore, it's only natural to have difficulty describing the monument to it. The United States gave away land to settlers in Oklahoma in the 19th century on a first-come, first-serve basis. The authorities would shoot off some guns, and people went charging into the area to put down markers and stake... More

This is a very nice little park, right by Bass Pro Shop & easy access to the river trails thru a tunnel by the park. They are always adding monuments to the area & it's a great depiction on the Land Runs.

Your GPS will take you into the Bass Pro shop parking lot. Just stay to the left and go behind the building where the boat shop is at Bass Pro. Nice little park, and an amazing expression of art. Watched a video from Far and Away movie before checking out the sculptures.

To see this and to read about the history of this is so cool. I've been there many times with my Kiddos . Our baseball team just had our team pictures done there and they look awesome.

Great opportunity to take in some of Oklahoma's great history. Plan on spending an hour and take a walk along the channel.

I'm from Oklahoma originally and family ran in the land run. This monument was so good it took my breath away. You cannot understand it's size until you are there. Lots of walking but on a pretty day that's no problem. A must see in my opinion

Larger-than-life cultures capture the moment the cannon fired to begin Oklahoma's Land Run where people could stake a claim to 160 acres of open land. From cowboys to families in wagons, a prairie doctor to a sulky driver, the sculptures capture the frenzy of the rush in amazing detail, even down to a horse tripping over a truck that has... More

This is a monument that you have to see to believe. The detial on the horses and wagone is amazing and the distance over which the monument stretches is enormous. The canal running through the middle gives a sense of wthe experience some of the adventurers had. Also well signed so informative. The only thing that spoiled it was the... More
