Up a Creek

The sunken walk along Brush Creek from the Plaza to around Paseo allows for a very pleasant hike, especially now that the cooler weather masks the water’s odor. Even so, one can’t help but think about what might have been. When the big "Cleaver Creek" project was initially floated to Kansas City residents, comparisons were made to San Antonio’s River Walk. And anyone who’s made the brutal six hour drive south on I-35 knows that Oklahoma City’s Bricktown is like a Westport on water. You can’t even take a boat ride at our creek, let alone buy a drink.
