BROKEN ARROW, Oklahoma -- Broken Arrow has been named as one of the top 25 places to retire. Money Magazine's 2011 list places Broken Arrow at number 8 of retirement-friendly communities.
It's the only Oklahoma town in the top 25.
"We are once again thrilled to be recognized as such a great city to retire in," says Broken Arrow Mayor Mike Lester.
"We know what a wonderful community we live in, and it's nice to see the nation taking notice. We are establishing a trend of being recognized year after year for the amenities and opportunities we have to offer."
The magazine notes the development of a new 68-bed hospital, a new YMCA with many programs geared toward older adults, recreational facilities and the community playhouse as pluses for retirees.
