The Airpark neighborhood sits directly south of central Oklahoma City. The area's name is rather appropriate, considering its origin. In the 1940s, several investors bought the land to turn it into a private airport facility. As one of the only airfields in a major city at the time, Airpark was created because investors hoped to prove that such a private venture would be successful. The park faced foreclosure in 2005, but the adjoining cafe lived on.
The Oklahoma River runs just north of the neighborhood along with a series of highways. The Air Nautique WWA Wakeboard National Championships are held on the section of the river closest to Airpark.
The Airpark neighborhood is a live music mecca. The outdoor concert hall brings in famous recording artists on a regular basis. Some notable performances in 2013 were the Lumineers and Nelly. The venue hosts concerts every month, drawing residents from all over the city. With a bar, concessions and restrooms, the concert park is a great spot to enjoy live music.
South Rotary Park is the perfect spot for tennis enthusiasts, as this public park features three courts. There is also plenty of green space for picnics or sporting games with friends.
A train line runs through the neighborhood, giving residents easy access to the downtown district. The easy commute is only 15 minutes
