Yukon City Park, Chisholm
Trail Park and Freedom Trail Playground are interconnected recreation
facilities on approx. 100 acres in Yukon just north of I-40. The
Copeland Nature Trail runs along a heavily wooded creek on the east side
of the park. The trail includes tall cottonwoods and several patches of
dense trees with heavy undergrowth. There is a gravel trail through the
woods on the south end of the park. The north end of Copeland Trail is
dirt or grass and follows along the 5-acre Mulvey's Pond. There is also
a wide dirt trail along Spring Creek that goes north from the dam. This
trail runs north across open fields to Chisholm Trail Park.
Directions: West of
Oklahoma City on I-40. Exit north at Czech Hall Road. Turn west on NW
10th and turn north on S. Holly, the first street you approach.
