Chickasaw Nation’s OKANA Resort & Indoor Waterpark , plus First Americans Museum anchor district

As construction progresses on all major components of OKANA Resort & Indoor Waterpark, the Chickasaw Nation and the City of Oklahoma City recently designated the project part of the new Horizons District. For now, the Horizons District will consist of the $400 million OKANA Resort along with the adjacent First Americans Museum (FAM). The museum opened in 2021 and is located near the junction of Interstates 35 and 40 in the heart of Oklahoma City. Chickasaw Nation-owned Exhibit C Gallery will open a new gallery space there in 2025. There’s also potential for further development in the 180-acre district following the resort’s opening in 2025.
