Oklahoma City wants your help in planning nearly $70 million in parks projects

City officials want community input for the improvements planned for 105 community and neighborhood parks around the city.

The improvements are part of the Neighborhood and Community Parks project that is paid for by MAPS 4, a sales tax passed in a special election in December 2019 to fund a variety of projects throughout the city.

The funds MAPS 4 has for these particular projects are estimated around $69.6 million dollars.

City officials are hoping to use the community input they gather this month to develop a master plan and assess current park conditions, accessibility or potential expansion needs.

There are six scheduled days in April for these public sessions, otherwise a survey is available for residents to take in both English and Spanish at maps4parks.com.

Dates and locations for the public forums are below:

1. Monday, April 10, 3 - 5 p.m.
