Oklahoma City's Northpark Mall

Though it does not have the size or status of other Oklahoma City malls such as Quail Springs or Penn Square, Northpark Mall offers more than 40 specialty stores, boutiques and restaurants in an enclosed northwest Oklahoma City shopping mall.

Built in the early 1970's by local businessman Thomas S. Morris and now operated by his son's Morris Enterprises, Northpark Mall started small but was expanded throughout the 1970's into a nearly 250,000 square-foot facility. After struggling through the 80's and early 90's, new restaurants and the conversion of a bargain movie theater invigorated Northpark, and the mall now boasts itself an upscale specialty center.

Stores & Services

Northpark Mall features a number of shops and boutiques, everything from gifts and flowers to clothing, pets and home furnishings. Services include fitness, spa and hair styling. In addition to the smaller specialty establishments, there are a few well-known retailers such as B.C. Clark,  Gourmet Gallery  and Gymboree.

Restaurants

The headline restaurant at Northpark Mall has long been Shogun Steak House of Japan, but it may be rivaled by the 2010 addition of a 2nd Rococo location. In addition, the mall houses a City Bites (soups, sandwiches) and CherryBerry Frozen Yogurt.

Northpark Cinema 7

One of Northpark Mall's bigger draws is the Northpark Cinema 7 movie theater, a Starplex property that is one of the few bargain movie theaters in the Oklahoma City metro. Featuring non-first-run films, Northpark Cinema 7 admission is just $2.

Location: 12100 N. May Ave., Oklahoma City.

Northpark Mall is located on north May Avenue, on the southeast corner of the NW 122nd Street intersection and just northeast of Lake Hefner. From the Lake Hefner Parkway, exit east on NW 122nd.
