The residents of Ross Heights are south of a great game of golf just waiting to be played at the beautiful, green Lincoln Park Golf Course. Around another corner is the Science Museum Oklahoma. The museum’s exhibit “GadgetTrees” has a three-story Archimedes’ slide which is a twenty-four foot slide. The slide is the tallest spiral slide in the world. Newton’s Clubhouse is another feature of GadgetTrees and is the oldest Oak Tree on Oklahoma’s side of the Mississippi. The Dome Theater is located in the museum and has a seventy-foot diameter dome screen which virtually surrounds the audience. The audience can expect to have an earth-shattering experience.
