Information Update from Scissortail Park and Myriad Botanical Gardens

As our region and entire country are now all pulling together to reduce the spread of the COVID-19 virus, Myriad Botanical Gardens and Scissortail Park are taking these measures to respond and help with this effort. Our decisions are informed by current guidance from the Centers for Disease Control and the City of Oklahoma City emergency declarations. 

All areas of our gardens and grounds will remain open at Myriad Botanical Gardens and Scissortail Park with the exception of the Children’s Playgrounds and the enclosed Dog Park.

Both the Gardens and Park are wonderful spaces to enjoy spring’s beauty with the tens of thousands of daffodils at Scissortail Park and stunning tulips and daffodils at Myriad Gardens. The beauty of these green and garden spaces can be a source of joy and solace as we all adjust to the changing realities of how we live our lives while working together to combat this virus.  

Please check our websites for both sites for changes to our program schedules.
