sunset-raw-copyYou’ll meet an array of historical figures and be inspired by the character traits that made them great leaders when you visit the Smithsonian-quality Cherokee Strip Regional Heritage Center that tells the history and development of the Cherokee Outlet. Discover what it was like to be in the saddle astride your galloping horse racing to stake your claim.

See what it was like to live in a sod house, and see the importance of agriculture, oil and transportation to the region, the City of Enid as the center of commerce for the region, and Phillips University. On the grounds of the Heritage Center is Humphrey Heritage Village, a collection of four historically-significant buildings, including the only remaining 1893 U.S. Land office, a 1902 church, a 1905 Victorian home and an 1895 one-room school house.

Crystal Beach Aquatics CenterWoodward’s new aquatic center has grown to be a community favorite, with its winding water slides, water bucket spectacular, shooting cannons, and pure adrenaline. See you at the park!

Swimming and hot summer days go hand in hand in the Oklahoma sun.

We enjoy the new Crystal Beach Aquatics Center and find it a great option for cooler days, but on those hot summer days we need to be outside soaking up the summer sun.

The Aquatic Center provides our visitors with a fun and safe place for kids of all ages to go, but also greatly enhances the quality of life for our community as well!
