Oklahoma City Mayor Mick Cornett is expected to cast a fishing line into Kitchen Lake to celebrate the opening of a new park on the city’s southeast side.

A ceremony will be held at 1:30 p.m. Tuesday after more than $850,000 was spent renovating a portion of the 160-acre park. Improvements include a new entry and parking lot, wheelchair-accessible sidewalks and a floating fishing dock.

Most of the funding came from a 2007 bond issue.

The lake has long been a favorite spot of local fishermen and is stocked with largemouth bass, crappie and three kinds of sunfish.

Oklahoma City’s parks department purchased a 10-acre portion of the park from the Water Utilities Trust in 2012.
