The Rose District is going from a mere downtown bud to a long-stem, business project.

That was the news that from the Rose District expansion press conference Friday at the Chamber as Broken Arrow’s trademark area continues to flourish.

“The Rose District will continue to bloom,” said Wes Smithwick, BA Chamber CEO.

 

One of the major changes will be an interactive fountain located in the Rose District Pavilion just south of The Museum Broken Arrow at 400 S. Main.

Officials said the fountain will have outdoor bench seating for folks needing a break or to eat lunch. The fountain could be programmed to offer different visual water displays.

While it should be relaxing to watch, BA City Manager Michael Spurgeon made one thing clear.

“This is not a splash pad,” he said. “It is a zero grade fountain that will rival anything in this area.”

The fountain will be 1,200-square foot and when seating is included should cost around $1.1 million. Designs are still being drawn up with hopes to open by this summer.
