Scissortail Park

Scissortail Park

Scissortail Park is a 70-acre public space created from funds generated by a penny sales tax. The 36-acre Upper Park opened on September 27, 2019. The Park is managed by Scissortail Park Foundation under a lease and management agreement with the Oklahoma City Economic Development Trust. Scissortail Park Foundation is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization responsible for raising funds to support the Park through donations, sponsorships and earned revenues. The Park, located south of Myriad Botanical Gardens, continues south close to the shore of the Oklahoma River. Featuring a variety of engaging experiences for visitors including ornamental gardens and woodlands, a 3.7 acre lake, children’s playground and water fountains, seasonal roller rink, dog park, picnic grove, restaurant and performance stage and great lawn, the Park has something for everyone.
