Wednesday and Thursday are Weather Aware days due to the potential for locally heavy rainfall. Beware of flooded road-ways and never drive around barricades or into water more than six inches deep. High rainfall rates may reduce visibility and also increase the risk of hydroplaning. Turn around, don’t drown! Isolated strong thunderstorms may develop late Wednesday afternoon, but widespread severe weather does not appear to be likely at this time.
ARDMORE, OK--A new Ardmore park is just a few months away from completion.
Parks and recreation director Kevin Boatright said they have broken ground on the new Southwest Park in Ardmore.
He said this week they are working on building, a parking lot, and a fence. They are also looking at proposals to buy playground equipment and a pavilion.
Organizers said it was a community effort that made the dream a park in that area a reality. The park's pavilion and playground is expected to be finished by October.
