    So, the Myriad Gardens & Scissortail Park have the 'Great Lawn'? Would be nice if they had two different names?

    Not surprising given that you can count the number of major corporate players in the city on one hand. I suspect when Arena naming rights come up for rebid they will be a big contender. It makes the most sense for their name to be said on national tv also.

    Is it sad that the first thing that comes to mind, is the prostitution that takes place down the road and how that is a "business" that happens a lot at a truck stop?

    Also, hopefully Scissor tail will be cleaner than a Loves bathroom.

    I guaranty you if you let the HQ know you saw a dirty bathroom at one of their facilities, they will take care of it. With the proliferation of the newer On-Cue type service stations on the highways with absolutely spotless bathrooms, they know the competition took a step-up. The issue with a lot of the Love's is they are a bit older and, therefore, are not quite as nice. The one's I frequent when I travel the region are, for the most part, pretty decent.

    Actually, I think you are the only person whose mind went straight to prostitution. Most normal people don't think that about any particular gas station brand....

    First thing that comes to mind after reading this post: "Dang, what are you doing in truck stop bathrooms???"

    Considering it's proximity to Devon Tower, I would have gone with the Great Lawn of Mordor.

    Are we taking bets on who the opening act is going to be for opening weekend. Are we thinking big like Garth Brooks Blake Shelton Reba McIntyre or we thinking more like Toby Keith

    Yeah, that's why I was asking what exactly Loves is paying for. The citizens tax dollars of OKC paid for the Band Shell & Great Lawn. Not Loves.

    Here is the Facebook post made by the Scissortail Park page, so looks like it will be just for operational expenses.

    The Stage and Great Lawn at Scissortail Park, scheduled to open this fall in Oklahoma City, will be named the Love’s Travel Stops Stage and Great Lawn in recognition of a major gift from the Love Family. The $2 million gift will fund ongoing maintenance of the park and support stage productions in the future.

    The six-acre Love’s Travel Stops Stage and Great Lawn is a first-class outdoor performance venue and features a prominent stage with green room and capacity for small (up to 1,500 guests), medium (up to 10,000 guests) and large (up to 15,000 guests) events, including concerts, outdoor movies, corporate events and symphonic performances.

    The venue can also accommodate festivals for up to 250,000 guests over multiple days and is adjacent to the future MAPS 3 Convention Center and Omni Luxury Hotel.

    “On behalf of my family, I’m excited to announce this gift, which will help launch and maintain a new premier performance venue for Oklahomans to enjoy for generations to come,” said Jenny Love Meyer, vice president of communications for Love’s Travel Stops and Country Stores. “This gift is our way of saying ‘thank you’ to Oklahoma City for all the support they’ve shown our family and our business throughout the years.”
    Here is the official press release:

    So, it's basically an endowment?

    Good for Tom and Judy Love. They are really stepping up their community sponsorships. They support the arts, rodeo events, OKCMOA, the Thunder, Scissortail Park, and others. We need more corporate citizens like them.

    Yes, very generous of Love's.

    OKC's largest private employer, Hobby Lobby, should take a lesson.
