Would you like to see public art in a beautiful Oklahoma City park setting? How about a beer garden? Maybe outdoor classrooms, interactive fountains or a digital screen...? If you were able to attend last week's public meeting, you heard planning discussions for the $132 million, 70-acre MAPS 3 downtown park. But even if you couldn't make it, you can still offer up your ideas.
The city has created an online survey to gather feedback on park activities and amenities. The survey allows respondents to select their top 5 priorities for categories such as recreation, performance and education. Also, there is an area to write in suggestions at the bottom. "Citizen input is critical to the development of the new MAPS 3 Downtown Park," MAPS program manager David Todd said. "We want to create a park that is unique to Oklahoma City and offers a variety of recreation options for people of all ages."
A 2nd community meeting on park planning is tentatively scheduled for October, and the MAPS 3 timeline shows work beginning next year.
