Centennial Park is Finished

Almost three months behind its scheduled completion, the H.A. Chapman Centennial Park at Sixth and Main streets appears to be finished. The park cost an estimated $3.8 million to create, but it has added some much needed green space amidst the concrete landscape of downtown Tulsa. [ Via Tulsa World ]

A lesser known Centennial Park is fairly close by at the corner of 6th and Madison. Among the parks features is Tulsa’s own Centennial time capsule, scheduled to be unearthed in the year 2048. It includes items such as a prototype of the 1998 Plymouth Prowler, a City of Tulsa Financial Report, student essays on what Tulsa will be like in the year 2048 and Tulsa restaurant menus. Hopefully the Prowler will come out looking better than the 1957 Plymouth Belvedere did at last year’s centennial celebration. By the way, a man in New Jersey is restoring the rusted memento. He hopes to have it operating by years end.
