Crowder Lake Park Celebrates Opening Day

Mason Pritchard with his car nicknamed the Bullet was the winner of a downhill derby race at the recent Crowder Lake Park opening day held recently at the facilities south of Weatherford.

Operated by Southwestern Oklahoma State University, Crowder Lake Park has a variety of activities that are suitable for clubs, families and corporate groups.

Paul Hummel, director of the park, said a complete ropes course day, for example, can be a fun event for just about any group. Family reunions, birthday parties and wedding receptions are other events that have taken place in the buildings located at the facility. Activities available include such items as watercraft (kayaks, canoes and paddleboards), rappel tower, rock wall and zip line.

The derby race was part of activities planned for opening day.  The Little Hummards placed second in their team Turtle car and the unique entry was awarded to Hunter Hargis in the bumblebee.
