Beautifying Green Spaces

Will Rogers Park is one of the most historic parts of Oklahoma City, boasting trees that were planted by city horticulturist Henry Walter in 1932. Margaret Annis Boys shared Henry’s ambition for wanting to create beautiful green places throughout the community for everyone to enjoy. Miss Boys left the bulk of her estate to the Oklahoma City Community Foundation to support the beautification of public parks and spaces. Through the Boys Trust and the Community Foundation’s Parks & Public Space Initiative, we continue to reshape, reimagine and revitalize neighborhoods, parks, medians and schools where residents can create their memories.
