Oklahoma

Bricktown

Just one block east of the Cox Business Services Convention Center in downtown Oklahoma City is Bricktown, Oklahoma City's major entertainment and dining district. It's the place to be! With many restaurants (total capacity of over 4,000 seats), chic shopping, and a generous helping of turn-of-the-century charm, Bricktown has become a hotspot lunch and also for Oklahoma City's night life.

In 1993, the residents of Oklahoma City passed the Metropolitan Area Projects plan, which raised over $300 million for the revitalization of downtown development. Some of the projects included were the Southwestern Bell Bricktown Ballpark and the Ford Center which is a new arena by the Cox Business Services Convention Center.

In addition, a mile-long pedestrian canal was created through Bricktown, turning south at the Ballpark, under the highway to a waterfall-and-forested park area. Water taxis ply the waters, and there are many canal-side restaurants with more under construction. This has rekindled a lot of interest in Bricktown from retailers, including Bass Pro Shops and Harkins Theater, a new 20+ screen movie theatre with stadium seating. The Oklahoma Spirit trolley system can take you around Bricktown and Downtown OKC for just a quarter. In warm weather, the Pedicabs can be seen ferrying customers all over Bricktown, as well as several horse-drawn carriages.
