After languishing for years, Oklahoma City’s MidTown area is experiencing a long-overdue resurgence.

At the center of things is the historic Plaza Court. These days, the 84-year-old building at NW 10 and Walker is bustling with life thanks to the ever popularMcNellie’s Public House and a variety of other establishments. And with other all-time favorites such as Café do Brazil,Stella and Brown’s Bakery nearby, there are plenty of options when you want to grab a bite.

Rockabye, Pachyderm

If you haven’t yet visited the most celebrated baby in Oklahoma City, you’re one of the few who still hasn’t. Malee, the first baby elephant ever born at the Oklahoma City Zoo, is being credited with drawing nearly 1 million visitors to the zoo so far this year.

Malee’s mom, 16-year-old Asha, delivered the elephant calf on April 15. Since that time, both mother and child have taken the throngs of well-wishers in stride at the zoo’s new $13 million elephant habitat. We just wouldn’t suggest your trying to hold the baby. Malee weighed in at a whopping 304 pounds at birth.

Downtown on the Move

If you’ve been downtown, chances are you’ve come across your share of street closures, construction and roadwork. Much of the activity is part of Project 180, an ambitious $140 million makeover to beautify downtown Oklahoma City. Renovating more than 180 acres (hence the name), Project 180 is adding public art, landscaping, decorative street lighting, marked bike lanes and on-street parking spaces.

Already the work has resulted in a dynamic transformation of the Myriad Botanical Gardens and Crystal Bridge Tropical Conservatory, with more improvements – including a children’s discovery park, restaurant and ice-skating rink – still to come. For more information, check out the Project 180 website.

Hot Fun in the Summertime

Sunshine and warmer temperatures mean one thing for many Oklahoma City residents: time for Lake Hefner. The 18 miles of shoreline on the city’s northwest side host an array of outdoor fun, from biking and jogging trailsto a golf course to the legions of boaters, sailboarders and fishermen who make the lake a second home during the summer months. Not a seasoned seafarer? No worries. The YMCA Sailing Center, located on the south shore, offers boating lessons for even the most inexperienced swabbie.
