Coming Fall 2019

Our website will grow as the park does – please check back often for announcements, updates and news.

  • For Everyone

    Scissortail Park is a 70-acre urban oasis extending from the core of downtown Oklahoma City to the shore of the Oklahoma River. Design plans for The Park call for everything from a cafe and sports facilities to a tranquil lake and nature walks. The Skydance Bridge will connect the north section of The Park to the south section.

  • Indoor/Outdoor Cafe

    The Social Order Dining Collective will manage the café. They have been responsible for introducing a number of successful restaurants in the OKC area including The Jones Assembly, Fuzzy’s Taco Shop, Texadelphia, and Seven47.

  • Boathouse

    The boathouse will include a concession stand for grab-and-go food, public restrooms and a large shaded patio. Guests will be able to rent pedal boats (one will be ADA accessible) to enjoy the 3.7 acre lake. Canopies will protect the boats from the elements. This area may be rented for parties and events.

  • Lake Bridge

    The 240-foot bridge spanning the lake will be a perfect place to enjoy amazing views of The Park and take photos with city’s skyline or Union Station in the background.

  • Ornamental Woodlands and Gardens

    The woodland is the largest landscape area in The Park and will be filled with plants and trees native to Oklahoma. It will be home to a variety of specialized gardens that feature color, movement, touch and smell. A seedling from the Survivor Tree, the only shade tree to survive the bombing of the Alfred P. Murrah Federal Building in 1995, will be planted in this area.

  • Stage and Great Lawn

    The main stage overlooks a six-acre oval outdoor lawn with seating for 15,000. Check back to this website often for updates on upcoming outdoor concerts.

  • Children’s Playground

    The children’s playground will include a net lens, geometric dome climbers, children’s gardens, and a large fort with a tower and slides. It will have plenty of shade and public restrooms. The children’s playground is adjacent to the interactive fountains for kids to enjoy on a hot day!

  • Promenade Pathway

    The promenade will be The Park’s main walkway extending north to south along the eastern edge of the Upper Park. It features lighting, interactive fountains and play areas. The Park’s northeast corner will include a large public art piece. An OKC Streetcar stop will also be located there. It will be the largest stop along the route, able to accommodate two streetcars at a time.

  • Dog Park

    Pet owners can look forward to a nearly half-acre fenced dog park with dog-sized water fountains and large boulders for furry friends to play on and enjoy.

  • Activity Areas

    A shady lakeside woodland leads to an open area where kids can fly kites, kick balls and enjoy the outdoors. An extensive underground French drain system has been created so rainfall and irrigated water drains back to the lake. The landscaping in this area will be an extension of the Myriad Botanical Gardens.

  • Interactive Fountains

    Located next to the children’s playground, this interactive water feature will be a popular spot on hot Oklahoma summer days!

  • Picnic Grove

    Picnic grove will offer plenty of seating and shade to enjoy a picnic lunch, celebrate a birthday or even host a family reunion!

  • Event Pavilion

    A 6,400 square-foot event pavilion with a seasonal outdoor roller rink and covered picnic area will be located in the southeast corner of the Upper Park.
