Interesting and pleasant walk. The Monuments are huge. Nice walk. The highway nearby is a noise spoiler but . . . I believe they are fixing it with a new surface. Go under the bridge to the other side. Nice walk to the river

If you're near the downtown OKC area, stop at the land run monument.........it's totally worth it! The bigger-than-life bronze statues are incredibly detailed and you feel very small standing next to them. I've taken several visitors to see them and everyone walked away completely awed and amazed.. It's a much bigger display than the photos and brochures depict, and the... More

No matter if walking the Bricktown Canal, or riding the Water Taxi, when you come up on this Land Run Monument, it takes your breath away! The statues are an extensive collection of Life Size Covered Wagons, Horses and Pioneer Figures, depicting a huge effort in crossing the river into Indian Territory. Visitors are welcome, when on land, to visit... More

Family oriented. Tour guide described all of the artwork and architecture of historic Bricktown. If you like bronze sculpture this is the one attraction you're going to want to see. 3x the actual size and you can be up close and personal with the Land Run scene including massive statues of galloping horses hitched to wagons. Quite impressive and there... More

We were strongly encouraged to go see this. It was not on our list, but I am so glad we took the time to go. Statues are remarkable in all the detail. It is worth seeing, doesn't take much time. Near Bass Pro in Brockton.

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
