TULSA, Oklahoma -

A downtown park just got a big makeover and a new name.

"The Green," which used to be "The Williams Green," was officially dedicated Monday, after being renovated.

It was originally built in the '70s, outside the Crowne Plaza Hotel at 3rd and Boston. Now, it's got new stone paving, benches and tables, to restore it to its original beauty.

"The Green was like a centerpiece for Tulsa. Mayfest came here, people from the hotel. We considered it a crown jewel. And over the years it - like a lot of things do - it kind of fell into disrepair," said Tulsa Parking Authority Chair Barbara Hess.

The parking authority actually used its own revenue, separate from the City to pay for it.
