MAY 25 – AUGUST 31

After a successful launch last year, Downtown Oklahoma City, Inc., (DOKC) and The Bricktown Association with the help of JE Dunn Construction Group, is bringing back a temporary summer attraction called the Bricktown Beach on the Third Base Plaza at the Chickasaw Bricktown Ballpark in downtown Oklahoma City.
The project will include a large sand-filled outdoor park area with umbrellas, lounge chairs, sand volleyball equipment, and outdoor games. There will be additional seating and a small boardwalk through the beach itself.
The Bricktown Beach is designed to activate an underutilized space in the heart of Oklahoma’s original entertainment district, and it will be a place to play, relax and connect with others. The Bricktown Beach will create a new purpose for the space and make it more usable for residents, visitors, and downtown employees.
The Bricktown Beach will be open daily from May 25 through August 31. On Thursday, May 25 the Big 12 Baseball Tournament will be hosting a Tailgating Party at the Bricktown Beach. On Saturday, June 17 DOKC, in partnership with American Institute of Architects Oklahoma, will host the Bricktown Beach Volleyball Tournament. Teams will be able to register in advance for the 16-team single elimination tournament.
In addition to the volleyball tournament, Downtown OKC, Inc. is hosting a free “Movie Night at the Beach” on Friday, July 21 at 9:00 p.m. A screening of Angels in the Outfield will get everyone ready for summer. Concessions will be available in addition to the games and activities that will be at the beach all summer long.
The Bricktown Beach is free to enter and is open to the public 24 hours a day, courtesy of the Downtown Business Improvement District, JE Dunn Construction Group, the Oklahoma City Dodgers and the City of Oklahoma City.
