Nature park could be coming soon to Jenks
A nature park potentially could be coming to Jenks within the next couple of years, according to city officials.
“We have discussed the possibly of putting a nature park in Jenks, so the next step would be to hire a firm to actually design the park,” Jenks City Manager Chris Shrout said. “Hopefully, we can select a firm to do that in the next six to nine months.”
The nature park would be located just south of 106th Street on the east side of Elm Street. There is a creek that flows through that 40-acrea area that is currently owned by the Jenks Public Works Authority.
There is no timetable on when the park would potentially be completed.
“Depending on what the park would be, I don’t believe it should be too expensive, but we have no cost estimate or funding mechanism just yet,” Shrout said. “There is no timetable on when the project would be completed.”
The Jenks Tribune will continue to update the status of the potential nature park as we receive information.
