Bicentennial Park

Bicentennial Park

Oklahoma City, Oklahoma

Part of an effort to revitalize Oklahoma City, Bicentennial Park received a $3.5 million renovation resulting in an area that celebrates the City’s history, while creating a modern space for future generations by updating amenities and enhancing pedestrian circulation.

Spanning from the Civic Center Music Hall to City Hall, the park covers roughly two city blocks and features a grand lawn, colorful fountain, two pavilions, and performance stage perfect for concerts, festivals, and other events.


  • Alvine Engineering’s scope focused on lighting design and providing power and controls for various lighting elements within Bicentennial Park, including pavilions, digital signage message boards, and a lighted fountain.
  • Provided the site’s electrical distribution design for lighting, the base water feature, and general power.
  • Coordinated security system revisions for the emergency call system and relocated surveillance cameras.
  • Provided multiple design concept possibilities for lighting of the three major sculptural elements on the site; the Pavilion, Arch, and Spinner Towers.
  • Custom curved benches were the overriding architectural improvement to the park. LED lighting was designed into the benches to reinforce the curved form and also illuminate the hard scape areas.
  • Performed sound model analysis of the space to provide recommendations for creating an appropriate sound environment.
  • Computer modeling was used to determine optimal loudspeaker selection and placement to create even sound distribution.
  • Provided design and consultation for an appropriate system to be integrated into the surrounding structure for the best acoustical solution.
