OKC VeloCity | Bricktown Beach opens for the summer

Bricktown Beach opens for the summer

By Kennedy Parker / Lifestyle / May 24, 2019

Is there anything more inherently summer than the beach? Just the word is enough to conjure up all those summer vibes you spend the rest of the year dreaming about. And what is a beach without a fantastic view? And what OKC lacks in ocean scenery, we more than make up for it with urban scenery through the Bricktown Beach.

For the fourth year, the Bricktown Beach is back on the Third Base Plaza at the Chickasaw Bricktown Ballpark. This urban beach has sand, umbrellas, lounge chairs, volleyball equipment, outdoor games—all the trimmings you’d expect a beach to have. Whether you just want to relax in the downtown sun, or maybe just want an area to play some summer games with your friends, the Bricktown Beach has what you’re looking for.

From a press release:

The project includes a pop-up beach with over 150 tons of sand complete with umbrellas, lounge chairs, a sand volleyball court, and outdoor games. Additional seating on the perimeter of the volleyball court and a small boardwalk through the beach is available for guests to enjoy. Returning this year is the “Beach Hut” staffed by Downtown OKC Guides, who provide game equipment and assist visitors with any questions they might have about the beach.

The Bricktown Beach is a community effort to activate an underutilized space in the heart of Oklahoma’s original entertainment district, and it will be a place to play, relax, and connect with others. The Bricktown Beach continues to provide a re-imagined purpose for the space and make it more useable for downtown residents, visitors, and employees.

“The OKC Dodgers are excited to continue partnering with Downtown Oklahoma City on this fun and unique addition to Bricktown for the summer. We are always looking for creative ways to make the ballpark a destination and kicking off beach season to start the Phillips 66 Big 12 Baseball Championship allows this DOKC program to do just that,” said Jenna Byrnes, Senior Vice President of the Oklahoma City Dodgers Baseball.
