“That is the word used by the Moore Oklahoma city manager Steve Eddy when he was presented with a comprehensive park and recreation system master plan led by me and the other members of my consulting team. The innovative master plan, subsequently approved by citizens for full funding, utilized 60 acres of available land in the downtown area to develop Moore’s Central Park. Moore is now a destination along I-35 for a contemporary community center, a contemporary aquatic facility, an amphitheater, public art, looped trail, water feature, and a Farmer’s Market.
Burdened over the years by its anonymity along the interstate between the cities of Oklahoma City on the north and Norman on the south, Moore now enjoys the benefits derived from its new destination park which include retaining its population and adding new businesses and citizens searching for a place where they would like to live.”
