  • Are you looking for Summer fun for your kids? We have the answer to that question! The City of Moore Parks & Recreation Department is excited to announce that we are starting a Summer Day Camp (Oasis Summer Day Camp) for kids ages 5-12. The Oasis Summer Day Camp will be every Monday-Friday from June 4th through August 3rd. The camp will be closed for the July 4th holiday. At the Oasis Summer Day Camp kids will play games, participate in arts & crafts, go swimming at The Station, go on field trips to some really cool places in the metro-area, play board games, make lots of new friends, and much more! You may register your child on a per week basis or you can also sign them up for the entire summer. Registration begins today! Do not wait to sign up as there are limited spots available and we expect that those spots will go fast. Make sure that your children do not miss out on all the fun this Summer. Sign up today for the best Summer Day Camp around! Registration may be done at the Front Desk at The Station Recreation Center.  Prices vary, so call The Station for details. Also if you have other questions, please call (405) 793-5090 and ask for Tanner McGuire, Recreation Coordinator.

  • The Moore Police Department has started a new program to help in solving crimes and recover stolen property. Many homes and businesses in Moore have private security cameras.  We are asking for the community's help in compiling a list of camera locations by having the owners register their system with the Moore Police Department.  This program is completely voluntary and will not cost the owner any money.  The video information can be utilized when a crime is reported in an area where we have cameras listed.  The Police Department will contact the owner and request a copy of their video footage to help develop leads in the investigation.  There would be no cost to the individual or business as the Police Department would provide the necessary equipment to download the video footage.  The information provided by the owner of the camera system will not be available to the public or subject to open records requests.
