Input on Oklahoma City's MAPS 3 park sought in online survey

Consultants will use results from an online survey to help shape potential plans for Oklahoma City's MAPS 3 park. The consultants will analyze what survey respondents say they want to come up with three plans for review at an October meeting.

“The master planning alternatives will be three fundamentally different ways to integrate the most highly desired programming, and lessons learned from other large parks in this country and around the world,” Petersen said.

A December meeting will follow, where Hargreaves will present one finalized plan based on feedback from the October meeting.

Coming soon

The park will be built in phases beginning next year, and it's expected to be completed in 2020.

The northern edge of the $132 million park will border the future Oklahoma City Boulevard and the MAPS 3 convention center, to be built on the site of a former Ford dealership south of Myriad Gardens.

The Skydance Bridge will connect the 40-acre northern section to the 30-acre southern section, which will extend to the Oklahoma River.

Hargreaves won the contract to design the park, based in part on its public involvement in the process and its experience in designing ambitious urban park projects around the world.
