Kings of Leon concert highlights Scissortail Park opening weekend

Thursday, October 3, 2019

After 10 years of planning, development and construction, Scissortail Park is now a reality.

"It's a symbol, I think, of our visions. And if we're persistent with our mission, this is the power of MAPS," said Mayor David Holt.

The 70-acre, $132 million park, located at the corner of South Robinson Ave. and Oklahoma City Blvd., opened to the public Sept. 27-29 with a weekend of festivities including food trucks, fireworks and live music.

The park is part of MAPS 3, an $805 million, debt-free capital improvement plan, which was funded by a 1-cent sales tax initiative that ran from April 2010 to December 2017. The park features ornamental gardens and woodlands, a lake and boathouse, children's playground, grand promenade, water features, outdoor roller rink, an enclosed dog park, interactive fountain and much more.
