  • USS Oklahoma City to be displayed in park

    Plans are moving forward for a commemorative display featuring components of multiple USS Oklahoma City Navy vessels just south of the lower section of Scissortail Park on the north shore of the Oklahoma River.

    The USS OKC Park Association is a non-profit privately-funded organization to commemorate all USS Oklahoma City-named naval ships, all of which served with honor and distinction.

    The proposed display would feature the submarine sail and dive planes from the USS Oklahoma City (SSN-723) and components of other USS Oklahoma City vessels including the anchor and ship's bell along with narrative panels depicting the history of the two ships.

    The group along with the City is seeking a long-term loan from the US Department of Defense to help fund this project.

    It would be yet another project along the Oklahoma River as Scissortail Park now stretches to its shore and a completely renovated Wiley Post Park is to the south, along with dozens of projects in the Boathouse Row area.
