Tinker in the Parks is SMO's
newest community event!
We’ve teamed up with Oklahoma City Parks Department, local artists, makers, and tinkerers to create SMO’s newest community event! Tinker in the Parks is your chance to visit metro area parks and participate in hands-on activities designed to help you explore your creative side. We’ll have activities set up at SMO and eight area parks. Each park will host 2-3 activities ranging from robotics to comic book making. As for SMO, you'll get to help us take a car apart in our parking lot!
Masks are strongly encouraged and all activities will be set up to allow for proper social distancing.
