Oklahoma City has accepted a piece of land with a historic tie-in to the city's history that they plan to develop into a park and trails.

The Oklahoma City Council voted Oct. 23 to accept 130 acres of land at the former Lone Oak Farms. The farm is situated to the west of Portland Avenue along the Bluff Creek between NW 150 and NW 164. It was once owned by former civic leader and philanthropist Dean A. McGee.

Ward 8 councilman Mark Stonecipher says that the city plans to interview residents in the area to develop a multi-use trail system and playground in the area.

“This is a great opportunity to make this beautiful, rural land in Oklahoma City part of our public parklands,” Stonecipher said.
