Some have called it the Central Park of Oklahoma City. It’s Scissortail Park, a $132 million park located near downtown.

Located a block south of the Myriad Botanical Gardens, Scissortail Park will include a south half between Interstate 40 and the Oklahoma River with connection provided via the Skydance Pedestrian Bridge.

The 70-acre park will include gardens and woodlands, a 3.7-acre lake, a children’s playground, fountains, cafe, boathouse, stage, dog park and a seasonal roller rink.

The north half of Scissortail Park is set to open in late September with a slate of concerts and performances.
