Kings of Leon concert highlights Scissortail Park opening weekend
After 10 years of planning, development and construction, Scissortail Park is now a reality.
"It's a symbol, I think, of our visions. And if we're persistent with our mission, this is the power of MAPS," said Mayor David Holt.
THE 70-ACRE, $132 MILLION PARK, LOCATED AT THE CORNER OF SOUTH ROBINSON AVE. AND OKLAHOMA CITY BLVD., OPENED TO THE PUBLIC SEPT. 27-29 WITH A WEEKEND OF FESTIVITIES INCLUDING FOOD TRUCKS, FIREWORKS AND LIVE MUSIC.
The park is part of MAPS 3, an $805 million, debt-free capital improvement plan, which was funded by a 1-cent sales tax initiative that ran from April 2010 to December 2017. The park features ornamental gardens and woodlands, a lake and boathouse, children's playground, grand promenade, water features, outdoor roller rink, an enclosed dog park, interactive fountain and much more.
