As advised by the Centers for Disease Control, places with typical large crowds – especially during Spring Break – are currently closed. The Oklahoma City Zoo and Botanical Gardens, the Metropolitan Library System and Frontier City are not welcoming guests this week. It’s especially a bummer for Frontier City, now owned by Six Flags, planned to open for the first time for Spring Break. The Pioneer Library System has closed all its locations through March 31. Pioneer serves Cleveland, McClain, and Pottawatomie counties.
Programs from now to March 23 at Scissortail Park and the Myriad Botanical Gardens have been canceled. The Oklahoma Gardening School, scheduled for Saturday, March 21, will be rescheduled with a new date announced soon.
But the park and the gardens themselves are open. The large, spacious areas offer plenty of play area, yet allowing you to keep your distance from other visitors. Visitors can see thousands of daffodils at Scissortail Park and stunning tulips and daffodils at Myriad Gardens.
The city of Oklahoma City’s parks are opened as well. There are also miles of trials to explore with your bike or on a walk. The Oklahoma Bicycle Society is canceling all its group rides for now, but the organization is encouraging people to take the trails by themselves for with a healthy friend. There are plenty of parks in Edmond, too.
