Parking in Oklahoma City can sometimes be a challenge -- but heading down to Scissortail Park, you will have many options to park or ride.

"Oklahoma City, they are experts at parking with the Thunder games and the concerts that we have," said Chris Bachmann, COO for the Scissortail Park Foundation.

And visiting the city's premier greenspace will be no different.

"So, we don't have to teach the community how to get here. They know how to get here. They know how to park," he said.

Once you arrive, you can snag one of the almost 200 metered parking spaces surrounding the park. There will be both parallel and pull-in spots available.

"It's a great, close parking aspect that will allow people to get close to the park to be able to enjoy it right away," said Bachmann.

Once complete, the new parking garage north of the convention center will offer 750 spaces. Just south of the convention center will be another 300 parking spaces in a surface lot. There are also several other parking garages within a half mile including the one at the Cox Convention Center. However, if you do have to park further away, there will rides you can take directly to the park.

"We're partnering with Embark on buses and special drop-offs," Bachmann said. "We're working with the streetcar. We are fortunate to have the double-sided streetcar stop at the north end of the park so it's easy to take the streetcar here. It will come approximately every 15 minutes."

Skateboards and bicycles are great options and allowed inside the park. You can also ride a Lime scooter to the park, but you'll have to leave those at the entrance.
