In March of 2017 El Reno's City Council approved a proposal brought to the by the El Reno Parks & Recreation Board. This proposal included new park and playground equipment for 6 city parks and a complete overhaul of three playgrounds. The main focus of this project was to give El Reno's residents and visitors a safe and fun place to relax and play. The playground at Lake El Reno is complete and already entertaining visitors daily with a pirate ship theme and several ADA features. Crews are currently on site at Legion Park and expect to be finished before Burger Day (May 6).
