Oklahoma Department Of Libraries shared The Field Museum's #DayOfFacts. ... See MoreSee Less

Did you know that octopuses have three hearts? Or that more time has passed between T. rex and Stegosaurus than T. rex and humans? Here at The Field Museum, scientists are constantly striving to make new discoveries and gain a better understanding of life, nature, and the world around us. As part of the #DayOfFacts, we asked some of our science communicators and experts to take us through Evolving Planet to highlight several of the many facts that can be found in the exhibition (and the Museum). We’re always doing research and learning more, and we invite you to be curious and explore the facts alongside us.

#TBT Delmar Park, Oklahoma City
What did people do for fun in OKC around the turn of the century? Go to Delmar Garden, of course! The popular amusement park, about 140 acres, had a 3000 seat theater, a dance pavilion, horse racing track, baseball field, swimming pool, beer garden, amusement rides, outdoor theater, a hotel, restaurants, scenic railway, exotic animals, penny arcade and a floating wedding chapel. The park closed in 1910 largely due to the adjacent river's frequent flooding and prohibition.

Pictured is the trolley station. The city's extensive trolley service brought visitors to Delmar Gardens and Wheeler Park from suburbs miles away in a matter of minutes.
