Thread: Scissortail Park

    I was in OKC a couple weeks ago and was impressed by how massive the convention center feels again the east edge of the park. I was on a short time schedule so I didn't wander around too much but that really stood out to me. Definitely a large city feeling. Would be nice to get some similar scale on the west end.

    Such a beautiful morning in the park with zumba classes blaring, the farmer's market, etc. We have family in town from Denver and they were really impressed with the park.

    Yes.

    You can take the river trail which will connect them.

    It essentially already is. Presently you can bike along the river trail from the boathouses to the parking lot just south of the south park.

    I'm not sure what they are doing there but there is still an easy connect to the trail and the lower park.

    I suspect this will be enhanced by demolishing and reworking that weird little road and remnant parking lot. There are two bigger lots just to the west.

    No kidding. It's going to look so dumb once the meat people sell that lot and it gets turned into an island of poorly landscaped parking in the middle of the park.

    Hard to do when the owner of said property is valuing his lot at far, far too much for the city to pay, especially considering fiscal responsibility and all that.

    Except still won't be open for a year-ish. I wish they could pour the promenade and open it early, with fencing up so you can't access the rest, so we could get down to the river on foot that way sooner.

    Most of the big stuff is already done.

    It's just a matter of finishing up the courts/fields, doing the final paving and plantings.

    I would love to see something like Southbank in Brisbane, Australia in OKC. I visited it a couple years ago and was blown away and kept thinking how big time OKC would be if they had something like this. I think it would be great around the Scissortail Park, Producers Co-Op site, or perhaps even incorporating this at the new resort. Having a beach area and boardwalk would be a home run for this city.

    ^^^ We're gonna have a blue lagoon at the OKANA Resort & Indoor Waterpark right across the river though.

    Press release:

    ***************

    ‘Tis the Season Holiday Lights and Events at Scissortail Park
    Union Station Illumination returns November 26

    OKLAHOMA CITY – Gardens and walkways lined with luminarias, buildings adorned with lights, a 40-foot Christmas tree and a giant menorah are some of what visitors will find at ‘Tis the Season at Scissortail Park. The 2021 holiday season will also feature the popular light and music experience – Union Station Illumination. Guests will be able to enjoy all of the free, festive displays from Friday, November 26 through Thursday, January 6, 2022.

    With support from SSM Health St. Anthony Hospital, Express Employment International, OG&E, Toucan Productions, BancFirst, Omni Oklahoma City Hotel, Crowe & Dunlevy, BC Clark, and Blair and Maggie Humphreys activities planned during ‘Tis the Season at Scissortail Park offer a safe, outdoor way to celebrate the holidays again this year.

    “One of my favorite memories from 2020 was watching a little girl and her parents dance to ‘Run, Run Rudolph’ as lights danced on the façade of Union Station,” said Maureen Heffernan, CEO of Myriad Gardens Foundation and Scissortail Park Foundation. “Or seeing a group of roller skaters skating by and stopping to skate to the ‘Dance of the Sugar Plum Fairy’ playing at Union Station Illumination. The light and music show created by our staff and Toucan Productions will again transform historic Union Station into a living canvas of color and festive excitement for all to enjoy. Our music selection includes songs and instrumental music of different genres – from blues to classical and from rap to church choirs as well as folk, Latin, rock, country and more. We want guests to discover and enjoy a more eclectic musical selection than just the same holiday songs overplayed during the holiday season.”

    A new addition this year is the Silver Flyer, a free golf cart tour for visitors with limited mobility. Guests may schedule this service in advance at scissortailpark.org/silverflyer.

    Along with holiday light displays, the Park is hosting a variety of activities including:

    The lights along the wide promenade will be the same that are in the upper park.

    I'm sure the design and fixtures are going to be just about the same.
