As one of the oldest parks in the city. Memorial has changed and adapted alongside it. In the 1920s, the city debated the best way to honor the sacrifice of World War I soldiers such as a grand boulevard or a decorative arch near the Capitol. Finally, in 1928, it was decided the most fitting tribute would be to remake the Putnam Park into Memorial Park to honor “soldiers of all wars and those of future wars.” The lake was replaced with a fountain that represents life and rejuvenation.
In the 1950s the Kiwanis Club constructed the recreation center that now houses the Boys and Girls Clubs. Now one of the oldest in the city. Memorial Park has an enduring place in the hearts of Oklahoma citizens.
The park features: basketball goals, playground, recreation center, soccer field, splash pad, tennis court and walking path.
