This past Wednesday I needed to go fetch the kid from college and bring him home for Easter. I had some time so I stopped at the Myriad Gardens in downtown Oklahoma City and checked out the Crystal Bridge. I think that I have only been in it one time before and that was in 1988 after they reopened up after the Oklahoma oil bust. They are going to shut the bridge down soon, revamp it, and reopen next Spring.
So it’s been thirty three years and yes it is kind of showing its age but it is still an amazing structure to be in.
Lots and lots of tropical plants under big, huge, glass windows.
There is two levels, ground level and then this skybridge which goes over everything.
Not too many people the day I went. Masking and social distancing were being enforced. But there were not too many people so I made several rounds of the facility.
I loved looking straight up the trees.
There are all sorts of little nooks where you can sit and take it all in.
Water is a feature, nothing like the sound of water falling to make one relax.
It’s closing soon. It’ll open in a year. I plan to check it out after the crowds have moved off somewhere else.
I’m thankful for places like the Crystal Bridge where people can go and recharge and get away from the hustle and bustle of everyday life.
