EXHIBIT HALL: On October 16, the Tulsa County Public Facilities Authority along with Expo Square staff broke ground on a new 43,000 square foot exhibit hall. The new Central Park Hall will feature an art deco inspired exterior to coordinate with other renovated buildings at Expo Square. Participating in the ground breaking are from left, Rick Bjorklund, Expo Square President/CEO; Commissioner Bob Dick;, Jim Orbison, Tulsa County Public Facilities Authority member; Commissioner Wilbert Collins, Sr.; Chairman, Commissioner Randi Miller; Clark Brewster, TCPFA member, and Jono Helmerich, President of Friends of the Fairgrounds. This building will be built on the east side of Central Park and just west of the existing Grandstands. It will boast a three-story observation deck, which will give visitors a fabulous view of the entire Fairgrounds, and it will also contain a second floor mezzanine that will over look the show- room floor.

Central Park Hall will be funded with monies appropriated from Vision 2025. Other improvements to Expo Square funded by Vision 2025 are Super Duty Barn (formerly known as Barn D), the F-150 Barn (formerly known as Barn E), and renovated restrooms and concession stands in the Expo Building.
