Scissortail Park

What can we tell you about the 40-acre park in the heart of downtown OKC that you don’t already know? From its walking trails to its farmers market as well as being the scene of festivals and live music, there’s something for everyone at the park whether that’s a stroll, a trip to the skating rink or enjoying food and beverages at one of the several spots ringing it. The Skydance Bridge will soon connect the northern portion of the park to the 30-acre southern section that is slated to open by late next summer.
