Crouching pose, Hidden Dragon

The downtown area sports several new spots to achieve Zen.

Boat it


OKG7 things to do

Gazette staff

There’s rocking the boat, and then there’s the Rock the Boat festival. The first festival of its kind (like, ever) will feature live music performed by ACM@UCO students on those cool little traveling Bricktown Water Taxis, shopping opportunities and family-friendly activities. The floating/rocking begins at 12 p.m. Sunday along the Bricktown Canal, 198 E. California Ave. Admission is free. Visit downtownokc.com.

Stepping up

Oklahoma City’s walkability numbers are improving along with the development of its businesses, sidewalks, parks and plazas.


News

Tim Farley
For decades, the twofold dilemma of urban sprawl and neglect of downtown Oklahoma City created a mess that current leaders still are working to unravel. Starting in the 1970s and continuing through the mid-1990s, “white flight” from innercity neighborhoods pushed residents and businesses to the outskirts of the city.
