Talks of creating a garden in Oklahoma City first began in 1964 when city leaders mastered a revitalization plan for the downtown area. Myriad Botanical Gardens has served as an urban getaway since its groundbreaking in 1977, and today, it’s a world-class urban park. The Urban Land Institute awarded Myriad Gardens with the title of 2016 best Urban Open Space in a competition that included parks from all over the world.

Myriad Gardens has been a gathering place for families for decades. Kids enjoy a special children’s garden and “splash fountains,” dogs romp through an off-leash park, outdoor enthusiasts stroll along walking and jogging paths and people of all ages partake in horticultural education programs. The Band Shell, located on the Great Lawn off West Sheridan on the northern edge of the Gardens, is the perfect place to enjoy a peaceful outdoor concert or to take in an exciting movie.

But perhaps the Gardens’ main draw is the Crystal Bridge Conservatory, a 224-foot-long living oasis straight from a jungle fairytale, complete with towering tropical plants, sprawling colorful flowers and even a 35-foot waterfall.

And you can even a great meal without wandering too far. The Ice House, a burgers-and-fries joint, is open March through October on the Gardens’ grounds. Plus, higher-end restaurants like FLINT and Vast are located just across the street.

There’s always something going on at Myriad Gardens. For a current listing of weekly events, click here.
