Top 16 Neighborhood Amenities in Automobile Alley, Oklahoma City

This Midtown neighborhood (also known as "A-Alley" for short) along Broadway Avenue in Northeast Downtown was a popular retail district in the 1920s and was home to most of Oklahoma City's car dealerships. The area declined with the rest of Downtown in the 1960s and 1970s. Today, there is a considerable effort to turn Automobile Alley into Oklahoma City's newest upscale urban neighborhood. Efforts to redevelop the area will transform the showrooms and storefronts of Automobile Alley into upscale lofts, galleries, and offices. Additional development plans are announced seemingly weekly, which will further enhance A-Alley's position as downtown's new chic and hip urban centre. Welcome to the coolest neighborhood in Oklahoma City, Automobile Alley!

Stiles Circle Park

Stiles Park at N.E. 8th and Stiles Circle, is the oldest park in the Oklahoma Territory, dedicated in 1901, and named after an early peacemaker, Captain Daniel Frazier Stiles. This unique 200-foot circular park remains a community focal point. The park is dominated by the "Beacon of Hope," a 100 foot by eight foot sculpture, with its 1 billion candlepower green beam of light that splits through the night sky to a height of 5,498 feet. It is dedicated to five Oklahoma City men who in 1965 had the vision for the Oklahoma Health Center located in the surrounding area. Surrounding the light shaft are five rings of stones in the ground, symbolizing a campfire, and five flowering trees dedicated to those five visionaries. At each of the four compass points is a bench with the colors Red, Black, Yellow and White, symbolizing the four seasons and the four cardinal directions.

There is no playground, picnic area, camping facility or sports field in this park. It is a reminder of Oklahoma's early days, and the city's springing into the future. Definitely come at night and see the beacon. Parking is available along the curb on the circular perimeter.
