MUSTANG, Oklahoma -- Mustang is starting a new trend across the state. Its Town Center is a unique concept. It's not just your average community center.

Deon Hall liked it so much he got a job working here.

"It has everything, a library, a pool, a baby room for the parents and everything. They have a basketball court, a track. Basically everything you need to stay healthy,"Hall says.

He mentioned a pool, but again, it's not your average pool. Mustang's Aquatic Park was added just a few years ago, and on days like this, it gets quite a workout.

Since Mustang's Town Center opened, other Oklahoma towns have taken notice.

"Paul's Valley is just finishing construction on similar facility, a recreational center," says Justin Battles, Director of Parks and Recreation. "And they visited our site multiple times."

Folks here pride themselves on the center's ability to provide services for the young, the mature, and all those in between.

Mustang's town center has been open about ten years, and they're steadily scaling new heights.

"We see over 6000 people in our door a month. That's the whole facility here. And that's a lot of people." Battles says.
