The skate park at Case Community Park is re-opened after the park was inundated in the recent flood event and work continues to re-open other parts of the park.

The 7,000-square-foot concrete park with skating features re-opened the week of June 17 after it was cleaned following the flood.

Sand Springs Parks Director Jeff Edwards said other parts of the park will be slower to re-open.

“The main road, the trail and some sports complexes (in the park may be able to open in the next few weeks), but there’s no restrooms, no electricity, no splash pads and no playground,” Edwards sad.

The City Council June 17 approved $385,000 in repairs to the park, including a contract with Landplan for oversight of park landscape amenities, evaluation of the site and more, up to $100,000 in electrical supplies, materials, labor and equipment for seven sites at the park, a contract with Studio 45 Architects for oversight of concession building, evaluation of the site, and more for no more than $35,000, an estimated $200,000 for supplies, material, labor and equipment for playground surfacing at two different sites in the park and a contract with Candle Electric for electrical site evaluation and more for no more than $5,000.

Edwards said crews will begin evaluation of the sites in the park within the next few weeks and the timeline for re-opening other parts of the park will become clearer after the evaluations.
