Celebrate spring, welcome new blooms and dress in all yellow for fun and prizes! 

Late last fall Scissortail Park horticulture staff and volunteers planted 40,000 daffodil bulbs throughout the Park. In anticipation of their spring arrival, the Park will host the inaugural Daffodil Dash, a 1K themed walk Saturday, March 7 from 11am – 1pm.

Join the Scissortail Park horticulture team at 11am as they lead the walk starting at the Promenade entrance located at the corner of Oklahoma City Boulevard and South Robinson Avenue. Participants are encouraged to dress as their favorite yellow flower or create an entire ensemble in the sunny hue for fun and prizes. There are costume/themed-dress contest prizes for individuals as well as dogs. 

Other activities include sack races categorized by age in the Love’s Travel Stops Stage & Great Lawn area, pinwheel decorating, hat decorating contests, flower sales, face painters, flower balloon artists, lawn games, music, food trucks, and more. The event is free and open to the public.

The new Scissortail Park is in the heart of a revitalized downtown Oklahoma City. This public space is part of the MAPS 3 program that envisions a healthy and vibrant quality of life for our city while serving as an investment in the future. Every detail is designed for connection – with nature, neighbors and ourselves. It is a place for play, culture, celebration and inspiration.

Scissortail Park features a variety of engaging experiences within 70 urban acres ranging from ornamental gardens and woodlands, to a lake and boathouse, children’s playground, grand promenade, water features, outdoor roller rink, an enclosed dog park, interactive fountain and much more.

Designed by one of the foremost landscape architecture planning firms in the world, Hargreaves Associates, the Park is also a horticultural tapestry of native prairie grasses, lush flower gardens and tree-lined walkways. Together we have created something spectacular. For everyone.

Scissortail Park is managed by Scissortail Park Foundation, a 501 (c) (3) nonprofit organization.
