We Want Your Ideas!

Thank you for sharing your thoughts and ideas for the MAPS 4 Parks Programming for Neighborhood and Community Master Plan Development. The City of Oklahoma City has engaged Kimley-Horn to prioritize the current and future opportunities of each park based on community input, current conditions,  accessibility, and potential expansion needs.

Frequently Asked Questions

As part of MAPS 4, every municipal neighborhood and community park outside of the central business district will receive an upgrade. Improvements will be based on need and neighborhood feedback. Improvements may include bathrooms, play equipment, shade structures, splash pads, furnishings, trees, paths, activity facilities, and signage. The Parks Programming Master Plan will identify and make recommendations for improvements at each park. Public engagement is vital to a successful plan. We want to hear from you through our surveys and interactive mapping!

This project consists of improvements to all neighborhood and community parks as identified in the MAPS 4 Program Implementation Plan. Your park may be considered a metropolitan park, district park, or special use park, due to the size and area that it serves.  Metropolitan parks, district parks, and special use parks are not included in this project. For more information about the overall parks system, please visit  https://www.okc.gov/home/showp...

Neighborhood parks serve the informal recreation needs of residents within walking distance of their homes. The size of a typical Neighborhood Park can be up to 20 acres in size. Amenities in a neighborhood park may include informal practice fields/open space, internal walking trails, play structures, outdoor fitness facilities, picnic areas, and park shelters. Neighborhood parks typically do not have permanent public restrooms, but could have drinking fountains.

Community parks are larger than neighborhood parks and serve several adjoining neighborhoods, attracting residents from a relatively large area. They allow for group activities, and offer recreation opportunities not feasible or desirable at the neighborhood level.  The size of a typical Community Park can range from 20 - 100 acres. In addition to the typical neighborhood park amenities, Community Park amenities may include splash pad/spray grounds, restrooms, facilities for plays or concerts, nature interpretation areas, and botanical/community gardens. 

On-site assessments are currently being performed for each park to evaluate the conditions of the current amenities. Based off these assessments and your public input, park amenities will be graded based on need. Critical needs will be recommended for improvement first, while other less critical upgrades and visionary items will be recommended as funding allows. After the assessment phase is complete, a list of recommended improvements will be developed for each park. You will have the opportunity to provide further public input during the recommendation phase as to which of the recommendations you would like to see in your park. The recommended park improvements will total the budgeted MAPS 4 funding allocation for neighborhood and community park improvements.

MAPS 4 has hired Kimley-Horn to lead the parks programming process with White Hawk Engineering assisting with public outreach. 

The consultant team is working with City staff to complete the master planning process in an approximate 12 month timeframe.  

Public engagement and input is critical to the success of this Master Plan. The City encourages residents to review materials included on this website, and provide input through posting comments and completing surveys.

Additionally, there will be a public meeting (or Open House) for each group of parks where you can give feedback directly to the project team. Meeting dates and locations will be posted to the website as they are scheduled, so stay tuned!
