The two RV Gypsies drove to Bricktown, OK
October 11, 2022

Bricktown is an entertainment district just east of downtown Oklahoma City, Oklahoma. It was formerly a major warehouse district. The major attractions of the district are the Chickasaw Bricktown Ballpark, the navigable Bricktown Canal, and the Centennial Land Run Monument

While Lee Duquette was buying the boat tickets, Karen Duquette heard an orange witch yell for help so Karen kindly helped the witch to her feet.

There were a lot of people already waiting to get on the boat. So while waiting to board the boat, Karen Duquette took a couple of photos.

The two RV Gypsies took a 40-minute trip on the Bricktown Water Taxi through Bricktown, from the eastern edge of downtown all the way to the northern edge of the Oklahoma River. All taxis are staffed by ambassadors that narrate points of interest along the way and give a feel for the unique history and culture of the area. Karen Duquette thought the narrator was hard to understand and since they were last to be seated on the water taxi, she was unhappy with her seat, so Lee took all of the below photos.

Below: The Centennial Land Run Monument commemorating The Oklahoma Land Run of 1889 was almost 25 years in the making. The tireless efforts of several visionary Oklahomans, generous contributions form a trio of initial donors, and extensive funding support from the city of Oklahoma City, the federal government, and the state of Oklahoma have ultimately resulted in a monumental bronze sculpture unlike any other in the world

The monument of 45 figures depicting participants in the 1889 opening of The Unassigned Lands. Built to larger than life scale, the sculptures meander along the southern edge of Bricktown. 38 people are portrayed as well as 3 wagons, a cannon, a dog and 34 horses. There is even a scared jackrabbit in the mix!

A highlight of the monument shows a parting of the wagon train at the area where Bricktown Canal passes through the park. The imagery describes the feelings of the horses as they shy away from the water.
