The newly named Case Community Park broke ground recently as the largest park project in Sand Springs history. We are excited to see the developments as they come to fruition as construction will be completed in roughly one year.! Case Community park will be a wonderfully bold representation of Sand Springs!
§ Demolition of old structures
§ New highway frontage entry; new signage; landscaping; large scale entrance
§ Added paved walks
§ formal baseball and soccer fields entrance (gets off Wellston Park Road)
§ additional parking & lighting (better security)
§ massive tournament sized soccer game field
§ two (2) new 10 & under youth baseball fields
§ pedestrian drop off
§ new playground near splash pad/concessions area
§ creation of picnic park area
§ new playground at picnic park area
§ new park shelters (performed by city parks staff)
§ ½ court 3 vs. 3 basketball court
§ re-vamped horse shoe pits & volleyball
§ “Great Lawn” – small manicured turf for special events (reference Guthrie Green lawn in Tulsa)
§ Outdoor pavilion/special event stage
§ Artwork- 10 or more custom art pieces laser cut and illuminated at night
§ Remodeled restrooms
§ Additional electrical power connections for special events
§ Improved views of Arkansas River
In the end the park will be safer, cleaner and more user-friendly for the public. There will be more rentable spaces and greater community event capacity. The Case Community Park will have a more efficient layout. While the project will not be a total rebuild of the park it will be a major “first phase” to the end result. A total rebuild of the park is estimated to cost 5X the current budget but will be a great stewardship of the funds, and phase one will be enjoyable for all of Sand Springs.
