OKLAHOMA CITY — Thousands of people visited a $132 million park in downtown Oklahoma City where the weekend grand opening included a free concert by Grammy-winning rockers Kings of Leon.
City officials said 28,000 people attended the show at Scissortail Park, which opened to the public Friday. More visitors streamed through Saturday to try out exercises classes and sample food trucks.
The park that will eventually cover 70 acres includes a lake, performance stages and trails. It’s also home to a clone of the “Survivor Tree” that lived through the 1995 Oklahoma City bombing. The clone will eventually be transplanted to replace the original American elm once it dies.
