Oklahoma City Convention Center
The $288 million center will feature nearly 200,000 square feet of exhibit space, a 30,000-square-foot ballroom and 45,000 square feet of additional meeting space. With a prime location across the street from the new Scissortail Park and just south of Chesapeake Energy Arena, the convention center will open in 2020.
70-acre Scissortail Park
Directly west of the Convention Center will be a 70-acre, fully programmed park that will connect downtown OKC to the shores of the Oklahoma River. Construction began last month on a 40-acre section across from the new Convention Center and will be completed in 2019, with the lower 30-acre portion set to open in 2021. The park will provide visitors with a variety of recreation activities, including concerts, walking/biking/running trails, picnic sites, youth sports fields, play areas, interactive water features and outdoor education opportunities.

The park, Convention Center and Convention Center headquarter hotel will all be linked to attractions, dining and nightlife in districts around downtown by a new streetcar system. The tracks are being installed now, and the whole six-mile system should be operational by December 2018.
