Rendering of the MAPS 3 Downtown Public ParkScissortail Park revealed as MAPS 3 Park name

In the spring of 2017, the City collected more than 5,000 MAPS 3 Park name ideas from residents and visitors. A committee narrowed those to six finalists, and a public vote to choose the winner concluded June 14, 2017. Scissortail Park emerged as the winner, and the name was announced at the park's official groundbreaking June 29, 2017.

The six finalists were:

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

Mayor Mick Cornett and the City Council invited residents to participate in naming the park. The only restriction was that the park won’t be named after a person.

The members of the committee that selected the finalists were:

  • Jim Tolbert, Myriad Botanical Gardens Foundation Executive Board of Directors chairman emeritus
  • Blair Humphreys, The Humphreys Company urban designer and developer
  • Claudia San Pedro, Sonic Corp. chief financial officer
  • Kimberly Lowe, MAPS 3 Park subcommittee chairwoman
