TULSA, Okla. (AP) – The Tulsa County Park Board has approved an $18 million plan to upgrade the 192-acre Chandler Park between Tulsa and Sand Springs.

The Tulsa World (http://bit.ly/1o22LBt ) reports that the board approved the plan Tuesday that includes new and renovated camping and picnic facilities. The plan also calls for a new playground and adjoining splash park, a bandstand, a realigned roadway and a second entrance to the park.

The board’s plan does not come with any financial commitment. County officials said that the first financial step toward implementing the plan is the April 5 vote on the county’s 0.05 percent capital improvement sales tax.

If approved, the tax is expected to raise $70 million over 13 years. A little over $4 million of that would be available for the park.
