Looking for something fun to do with the kids while they’re out of school for Spring Break next week? We’ve got you covered! Check out our list of fun Sand Springs activities below.
- Take the kids to SKATES for some roller skating family fun. Oklahoma weather is always unpredictable, but especially in March. This is a great way to get moving inside if it’s chilly outside.
- A hike through Keystone Ancient Forest is the perfect way to take advantage of nice weather and experience nature. Saturday, March 11, and Saturday, March 18, both Saturdays of Spring Break, are open hike days! The trail is open from 8 a.m. to 2 p.m. Make sure to bring your camera to capture the breathtaking views.
- There are sure to be some great movies playing at the Sand Springs Cinemark Cinema 8. Get some popcorn and candy and sit back, relax and enjoy the show. For movie times click here.
- Spend an afternoon in downtown Sand Springs! Do a little shopping and have lunch, then head over to the Sand Springs Cultural & Historical Museum to learn about Sand Springs’ roots as an industrial town and Charles Page’s remarkable philanthropic work here.
