There's Always Something Going on at Boomer Lake

Updated on November 13, 2012

Thus far, this has been a busy week for the City of Stillwater, gearing up for the 2012 Fourth of July celebration. Both city and contract workers have been working hard every day getting all those big and little things out of the way, so that the citizens of Oklahoma can enjoy a wonderful holiday. City workers have been edging the 5 kilometers of concrete walk path, cutting down diseased trees, and trimming low limbs.

Contract workers have been handling Veteran’s Memorial, which looks wonderful with replacement stones. Other workers have been drilling for water wells, and all of this will be done before July 4.

Stillwater is definitely an up-and-coming city with a number of wonderful things to its credit, especially Boomer Lake Park, which has several pavilions for the enjoyment of area residents. There are barbecue grills, restrooms for your convenience, benches to sit and rest on all around the lake, and beautifully landscaped and natural areas for wildlife. In addition to these wonderful amenities, there is terrific boating and fishing on the lake.


This is truly a wonderful place in which to work and live, where the people are warm and friendly, always willing to lend a helping hand to those in need. Stillwater boasts a number of top-notch area restaurants, shopping malls, and let’s not forget about our great Oklahoma State University with some of the best sports teams in the nation. This school turns out a number of graduates each year for veterinary sciences, hotel management, agricultural sciences, and other much-needed careers in this locale.

Take a look around you, and appreciate the city life, suburban areas, and the rural locations, too. Stillwater has a wonderful mix of everything that one could ever need, right here in central Oklahoma.

Thanks to both the city and OSU, we also enjoy excellent public transportation. There are also wonderful public schools to the credit of Stillwater and superb community living. So thanks for the good work, City of Stillwater, and hope to see you at this upcoming Fourth of July celebration! Fireworks start at 10 p.m., and there will be plenty of parking on the south side of the lake. This is a perfect way for families to get together for the day and enjoy their time together, as well as meet other new and interesting people.

      Hi Deb Hirt. Nice read. Voted up and beautiful. I have never been to Boomer Lake, but from what I see, it is a place to die for. Will put it in my next holiday destinations, among other places in the state. Thank you for the information.
