I think we can all agree this weather is “Park” weather! If you haven’t had a picnic or taken your family to the neighborhood park, you are missing out. We have put together a list of our favorite Urban Core Parks here in OKC.

Oklahoma City’s Urban Core Parks have many amenities. From large amounts of open green space for your pets to get their exercise to the Splash Pads to cool off the kids on a hot summer day. In recent years, we have seen great updates to many of these parks. Including Myriad Gardens and Memorial Park.


New Updated plans for the New Downtown Park and Military Park in the Asian District.
