OKLAHOMA CITY – On Tuesday, leaders in Oklahoma City signed off on plans to continue spending nearly $1 million in private money, making recreational improvements along Lake Overholser.

The upgrades include a zip line, giant swing and renovated boathouse along the Canadian Rover, on the east side of the lake.

Some residents who live nearby came to the city council to protest the rezoning, saying they don’t like the idea of a large riverfront playground near their back yard.

About $250,000 in improvements had already be made prior to the request for rezoning.

The rezoning passed the council unanimously.
