“As any designer will tell you that’s involved in this kind of work, we covet legacy projects and there is no question that this is a legacy project. It is a game changer. I also would like to say that this project will be a lot more than the sum of it’s parts. This is a new day for Moore, Oklahoma. This is the citizens of Moore, Oklahoma, saying to the world we have taxed ourselves to change to quality of life here in Moore to change the identity of Moore forever,” McDermid said.

The property the park will be built on, McDermid pointed out, was remarkable in many ways.

“It has remained undeveloped and available for this project since the beginning of Moore. On this piece of land, in history, has seen buffalo, it has seen Native Americans, it has seen the cattle trail it has seen the rail. Those tracks out there were there in 1886 and brought the settlers in 1889 to Oklahoma City. There is remarkable history here and this is just another piece of that history,” McDermid said.
