Day At The Park...

These darling pictures of the kiddos were taken at the Route 66 Park. Lake Overholser is home to Oklahoma City's newest sensational recreational hot spot, Route 66 Park, on the west side of the lake. Route 66 Park includes:

~The Parks and Recreation Department's largest playground
~Cyrus Avery Observation Tower (three stories tall). From the Observation Tower, visitors can get a sweeping, panoramic view of the 148-acre Park's three ponds and Lake Overholser.
~Route 66 Plaza containing a stamped map depicting the historic Mother Road's route from Chicago to Santa Monica is featured in the park's Route 66 Plaza. Thirty-four landmarks from Lincoln's birthplace in Springfield to the Harvey House in Barstow, California are featured along the eight-state map.
~Small amphitheatre (accommodates 80 - 100 people seated)
~Approximately one mile of winding walking trails
~Three ponds containing wetland boardwalks, bridges, plantings and interpretive signage
~Covered picnic pavilion

Lake Overholser in central Oklahoma is located on the east side of Yukon. Lake Overholser has 7 miles of shoreline and 1,500 surface acres. Lake Overholser, owned by the city of Oklahoma City, has fishing, nature trails, soccer fields, and tennis courts. We live in Yukon about ¼ mile west of the Lake. The kids love that we are within walking distance of Lake Overholser. On the north end of the lake sits an old bridge that Londynn insists we drive on every time we get in the car.
