Public parks offer many benefits to a community. They add a natural beauty to a city and make it more attractive. Residents and tourists love to visit parks in order to commune with nature and enjoy the beautiful day. Parks are also great venues for outdoor public events, such as concerts, picnics, and festivals.
Oklahoma City is planning to add another beautiful park to the area. The new park will be divided into two parts: the upper part will be located from Southwest 3rd Street to Interstate 40, and the lower part will be from Interstate 40 to the Oklahoma River. The entire park will be 70 acres and will cost $80 million.
The new park is part of the MAPS 3 project and will be another beautiful way to connect downtown to the Oklahoma River.
Features of the park will include walking trails, a children’s play area, and a lake that will allow paddle boats. From the Oklahoma River, there will be a trail system going leading to Lake Overholser. A bridge will also be constructed to provide easy access from downtown to the river.
