The Myriad Gardens

The Myriad Gardens is one of the most well-known areas in Oklahoma City.  In fact, the Crystal Bridge is often included in official pictures of Oklahoma City, especially the downtown area.  Located in the heart of the city, the gardens are host to a variety of events throughout the year, plus they make a great place for people to take a picnic, spend a Sunday afternoon, or just escape from the world on their lunch break.
