Name the MAPS 3 downtown park on the poll on NewsOK.com

I had the opportunity a number of weeks ago to stand on the top floor of the Devon Tower and look to the south. I saw the Myriad Gardens directly below, the Chesapeake Energy Arena to the left and the Skydance Bridge down the way.

That vantage point brought the yet-to-be-named MAPS 3 downtown city park to life.

I had already seen the maps we had in The Oklahoman and on NewsOK.com. And I had read the stories about the plans for the city park. Steve Lackmeyer and William Crum have covered it well.

But from above, I could see it.

Now I can name it. So can you.

The city of Oklahoma City has allowed you to be a part of the process. First, they had the name nomination process. That was fun.

From your more-than 5,000 nominations, the city chose six finalists and is allowing us to choose the name.

NewsOK.com has the poll

You can choose your favorite from these names.

  • Painted Sky Park
  • Prairie River Park
  • Renaissance Green
  • Scissortail Park
  • Skydance Green
  • Union Station Commons

I know how I have voted. You can be part of that process, as well.

Vote at newsok.com/name-the-park. The link to the poll is posted on the NewsOK home page. Voting will continue through June 14.
