Overview

If you are looking for a place where you can live it up in each of the four seasons, Oklahoma City is the place for you. Here in OKC, you'll find a pretty typical, seasonally varied climate throughout the year. Summers are sunny and warm with plenty of days for swimming. Winters are bright and cold so you'll have plenty of excuses to enjoy a cup of hot chocolate after doing a little outdoor ice skating. Autumn is crisp, perfect for football or a scenic drive. And springs are often wet, but filled with plenty of clear days to get out and watch the flowers bloom.
 
Basically, Oklahoma City boasts a great balance of weather. During our enjoyably average (weather-wise) year, we experience clear skies most of the time (65 percent), clean air and an annual average temperature of 60 degrees. For more on the climate click here.

Rivers

Boathouse 16:5 Oklahoma River 
The Boathouse District along the Oklahoma River offers some of Oklahoma City’s more popular ways to spend time outdoors, enjoy views of the downtown skyline and get active. Located within walking distance of the hotels and restaurants of the Bricktown Entertainment District, the Boathouse District is the focal point for OKC RIVERSPORT’s rowing, kayaking, running, cycling and fitness programs. 

Visitors can rent kayaks, stand-up paddleboards and water bicycles and check out dragon boating. They can zip across the Oklahoma River and back on the SandRidge SkyZip or climb the six-story SandRidge Sky Trail and Slide, an 80-foot adventure course to be climbed while safely fastened in with a harness. Getting down requires sliding down the Sky Slide or dropping via the Rumble Drop. 

RIVERSPORT Rapids, the 11-acre whitewater rafting and kayaking center, opened in May 2016. This state-of-the-art aquatic adventure facility is geared for both family fun and elite athlete training, adding even more outdoor recreation opportunities to the list. 

The Youth Zone packs in plenty of adventure for the younger set – the Sky Tykes adventure course, the Cloud Bounce, a miniature zip line and the Extreme Air bungee. The Boathouse District playground is free.Be sure to wear close-toed shoes in order to enjoy these activities.
