Family Outings

Posted: 1/23/18

Having a new baby or toddler can be isolating. It's hard to get out of the rut of the daily routine. These places have lots to offer for kids and adults, and can help recharge your batteries.

Martin Nature Park

Martin Nature Park

5000 W Memorial RoadOklahoma City, OK 73142 | 405-297-1429 

This free city park is a perfect way to get your regular fill of nature. The walking and hiking paths are easy to navigate but still manage to whisk you away from the bustle of city life. Hike for as long as you want, then bring the kids to the playground to burn off the last of their (unending) energy.  website

2020 Remington PlaceOklahoma City, OK 73111 | 405-602-6664 

This isn't just for families with older kids. They have a great baby-toddler play area, with a baby feeding room set off to the side for when parents or baby need a quiet moment. There are activities for all ages, but my favorite part is probably the garden tucked out back. Pack a picnic lunch and eat outside. Tip: purchase a membership - that way, when baby decides he's ready to leave after just an hour, you don't feel like you've wasted money on the ticket. Members also get discounts on camps during the year - SMO's summer camps are great!  website

Myriad Botanical Gardens/Crystal Bridge

Myriad Botanical Gardens/Crystal Bridge

301 W. Reno, Oklahoma City, OK 73102 | 405-445-7080 

I love going downtown. Stroll through the gardens for free. Paths are stroller-friendly and there are lots of shady spots to rest when it's hot. The Crystal Bridge is a little bit of paradise hidden in the center of Oklahoma City. Consider purchasig a membership: members can bring up to 6 guests each visit. Myriad Botanical Gardens offers great camps for elementary school kids and other activities during the year - members get free admission to many events.  website
