5 Things to do in Oklahoma without mortgaging the family farm

This is inspired by a blog in which the writer counted down some of their favorite cities in the world. Oddly enough Oklahoma City was not one of them. Over the next several days we will be counting down 5 things to do in Oklahoma without breaking the budget and ruining your finances.

This list was compiled with the help of my co-workers here at CCCS. I hope you enjoy!!

# 5.  Martin Park Nature Center – Oklahoma City

In the heart of Oklahoma City is a wonderful place to take your family. MPNC features a 3.5 mile hiking trail on 144 acres. The park also serves as a wildlife sanctuary with animals including birds, butterflies, squirrels, fox and reptiles. If you are lucky you can even see deer, coyotes, owls and armadillos.

The park has been named a regional “Ten Best” Parks and Playgrounds in
National Geographic’s “The Best of Everything for Families: An Ultimate Guide for Families.” – 2009. That is a pretty nice honor! The park also has many educational activities for the entire family. My favorite has to be Tweets for Tweeties!! I love that name!!

The best part is depending on what you choose to do the park is either free or extremely low cost and budget friendly. I truly hope you take advantage of the Martin Park Nature Center.
