Central Park Plans Revealed and Groundbreaking
On December 11, 2013 the design team from Oklahoma based TAP Architecture unveiled the designs for the new Moore Recreation Center and Aquatic Facility that will be located at a new park located along Broadway Ave in the heart of Moore.
Ground was broken at a public ceremony on May 9, 2014.
The facility will cover just over 113,000 square feet. The Recreation Center will be 52,311 SF, Aquatics Support Building is 7,415 SF, and the Aquatics Deck and Pools: 54,009 SF. We estimate that these projects will be completed by the Fall 2015.
Aslo included in the park will be an amphitheater, farmers market pavilions, walking trail, universal playground and open spaces for families to gather.
The park is a total of 50 acres of untouched land in the center of Moore. The family of Dr. Curtis Berry sold the land in 2013 to the City of Moore at a steep discount for the park.
