Finding common ground

Flooding concerns, an alleged lack of transparency and the potential for harm to wildlife didn’t deter passage of a proposal to add new trails and structures at Martin Park Nature Center.


Tim Farley
The Oklahoma City Parks and Recreation Commission voted unanimously last week to approve a proposal by nonprofit group Wilderness Matters, Inc., which seeks to add handicapped-accessible trails and other structures to the park at 5000 W. Memorial. The issue moves to the Oklahoma City Council for consideration in January.
