A Great Place to Grow a Family
Central Oklahoma is experiencing an enduring growth trend because community leaders chose to make it a place where families can easily enjoy life. A low cost of living means that people can afford better homes with good schools and easy access to work and play.
Covering more than 60 square miles, Northwest Oklahoma City is the bedrock for this growth, offering not just a variety of housing additions and neighborhoods, but also four independent smaller cities with their own municipal governments and a special sense of belonging for their residents.
