Public Update Set for March 11 at Capitol Hill Library

Learn more about what’s coming with Scissortail Park in a public forum March 11. The forum is the third hosted by the Scissortail Park Foundation to update Oklahoma City residents on the construction of the park and what to expect when it opens late this year.

The forum is 6:30-8:30 p.m. Monday, March 11 at the Capitol Hill Library, 327 SW 27th Street. The Foundation, a 501(c)(3) nonprofit, will host the meeting and will manage the park when construction is finished. The 70-acre park is funded by MAPS 3.

Maureen Heffernan, CEO and President of the Myriad Botanical Gardens Foundation and Scissortail Park Foundation, will lead the presentation and include details on the unique features in the upper and lower sections of the park, public transportation and parking, the café operation and an overview of the grand opening celebration plans. A Q&A will follow.

The Foundation wants feedback and suggestions on everything from what kind of programming people want to see in the park to ideas for the grand opening.

Refreshments will be served beginning at 6:30 p.m., with the presentation and Q&A beginning at 7 p.m.

The event is free but space is limited. RSVP by calling (405) 445-7080 or online here.
