District, OKC Boathouse District (an Olympic training site), Adventure District (zoo and museums),
Midtown & Arts District, 80 miles of multi-use trails, and a new streetcar system. Professional sports
arenas serve the Thunder basketball team, Energy FC Soccer team, and the Dodgers Triple-A baseball
