Central Park is coming to Moore, OK. The park sits on the corner of 4th and Broadway near the railroad tracks and runs south along Broadway. The park is 51 acres. It will house a 53,000 sqft recreational center and a 45,000 sqft aquatic center. In addition, there is a large amphitheater, a 2 mile long multipurpose trail, a playground (handicap accessible), and a farmers market. There will be approximately 350 parking spaces.
This is a wonderful addition to the Moore landscape. It will provide the citizens of Moore as well as those from surrounding areas with a wonderful area to enjoy time with their families or by themselves. Moore has not had a pool in their town for several years, since the demolition of the pool at the 5th street Park. This new aquatics center replaces the old pool with a state of the art water park like pool. There is a lot of excitement regarding the pool that will be open summer of 2016.
The city is providing a lot of services at this new park. There will be fees for the use of the recreational center as well as the aquatics center. The residences of Moore will receive a discounted rate on those fees about 20%. A Moore water bill will be required as proof of residency. The city will be selling day passes, season passes and annual passes. They will also have a 15 day pass that you can use as you want. So you can use it for 15 days in a row or over the season. They will have discounts for active duty military, families, and seniors. The city is currently selling annual passes. Stewart at the parks department told me today that they are giving a 13 month pass for the price of a 12 month pass if you purchase now, prior to the park opening.
Below are some of the features of the recreational and aquatic center:
The recreational center will contain the following:
2 Full Basketball courts
Workout room with 70 pieces of exercise equipment

I am personally very excited to see this project come to fruition. I think it will provide the citizens of Moore with a great central meeting area for picnics and other entertainment. This is a very progressive step which will make our community shine. While we have several other great parks in the community, this park is in the heart of Moore and will become the central focal point for the community.
