ENID, Okla. — Meadowlake Park has been dodging storms this opening weekend, but rides are available for Enid residents from 6-9 p.m., according to the city of Enid.

The Meadowlake Flyer, kiddie planes and trains, carousel and ferris wheel will be open, but rain-swollen Meadowlake and muddy conditions have postponed the opening of the paddle boats, Enid City Manager Gerald Gilbert said.

“It’s just a big mud mess,” he said, adding the city is working to build a sidewalk, and the paddle boats will be open as soon as conditions permit.

The rides are open from Memorial Day weekend through Aug. 11 from Thursday to Sunday, with extended hours on the weekends. Rides will be available on weekends past the August date into October, according to the city of Enid website.

Cost of the tickets is $1 each, and rides are 2 tickets for train, ferris wheel and carousel and 1 ticket for the planes and cars.

Meadowlake Park North is located at Van Buren and Rupe, with park opening off Rupe. The entrance to Meadowlake Park South, with playgrounds and picnic areas, is off Van Buren.
