FREE Scissortail Park Takes Flight Grand Opening Weekend

Date/Time

September 23, 2022 to September 25, 2022

Description

Features guided tours, children’s programming, music and dance, health and wellness activities, as well as a concert by the Oklahoma City Philharmonic. Many programs will be offered both in English and Spanish.

Once open, the newly-completed portion of Scissortail Park, which will nearly double the size of the Park to 70 acres, will feature two basketball courts, a soccer field, futsal court, and four pickleball courts, as well as a sports pavilion and small performance area. The Nature Play Area will provide shady spots for children and families to interact with natural materials like boulders, logs, and sand, providing endless opportunities for creative play. The sports courts will be available to the public for open play several hours each day.
