After a lot of hard work and millions of dollars, the Case Community Park is officially open giving Sandites a reason to celebrate.  
    
The playground equipment is part of the $6 million upgrades to the park.

Now, it's ready for everyone to enjoy.

Kids are climbing all over the new equipment and it's just the beginning of what the Case Community Park offers. 

Philanthropist Mike Case said, "It's a big day"

He and Vision 2025 money make it all possible. 

"When I was raised in Sand Springs, the only park we had was just a small baseball diamond and a basketball court." Case said.

Now, there's a brand new circle basketball court to play on. 

It's the second Thunder Cares Foundation court in our area.

And kids didn't waste any time shooting the first few hoops. 

8-year-old Jacob Heeley said it "makes you feel like you're on the same court as all the players."

Right now, the lawn is full for a car show, but the stage will offer a space for concerts in the future. 

And that has a lot of Sandites smiling. 

Sand Springs Resident Camille Quinn said, "This is the gathering place of sand springs"

There's still a lot of fun to have tonight at the Case Community Park. 

The celebration ends with a firework show at 9:45.
