It's officially summertime and the season for outdoor activities is upon us. Oklahoma City has parks, swimming pools and playgrounds. But what does OKC have that no other city has to offer? The Oklahoma City Boathouse District (or, OKCBHD for short). If you haven't made your way down to the north shore of the Oklahoma River to experience RIVERSPORT Adventures, you gotta check it out!
We could sit here and tell you about all the cool activities down in the OKCBHD, but it's just more fun to actually show you. Like this:
Yes. He's standing. And paddling. (Don't worry, they'll teach you how!)
Safety first! While on the Sky Trail adventure course, you are strapped in to a full-body harness that connects to an overhead track.

The Sky Slide is the tallest side in America!
Everything you've just seen is right here in downtown Oklahoma City. And there is so much more to come. Later this year, a 700-foot zip line will be installed taking you from the top of the Sky Trail across (yes, across) the Oklahoma River and back. A surf park will soon be added to the SandRidge Energy Youth Pavilion and the MAPS3 whitewater course is expected to be complete in 2015.
So, come test your limits and enjoy the great outdoors in the Oklahoma City Boathouse District.
