OKLAHOMA CITY - After counting thousands of votes, Oklahoma City leaders have selected the name of a future park.
In March, Oklahoma City Mayor Mick Cornett asked residents to submit their best ideas to name the MAPS 3 Park.
“The MAPS 3 Park will be a gathering place for generations in Oklahoma City, and it needs a timeless name that's meaningful to our community,” Mayor Cornett said.
Earlier this month, officials asked residents to vote for their favorite park name out of six finalists.
- Skydance Green
- Union Station Commons
- Painted Sky Park
- Renaissance Green
- Prairie River Park
- Scissortail Park.
The votes have been counted, and the results are in.
On Thursday, officials announced that the park in downtown Oklahoma City will be named Scissortail Park.
