- Surrounding Area
- TLC - Edmond sits on the lovely University of Central Oklahoma campus in the heart of the safe, friendly and affluent suburban city of Edmond, Oklahoma. Home to an estimated 72,000 residents, Edmond is the second-fastest growing city in the State and is considered by many to be the “Crown Jewel” of Oklahoma. With extensive public art installations scattered throughout the city and its downtown area, Edmond is a charming community to explore and appreciate its artistic and cultural uniqueness. The area is also well-known for nearby Arcadia Lake, a picturesque location for outdoor enthusiasts to go fishing year-round, boating and water skiing, use the surrounding trails to go hiking, horseback riding or mountain biking, and go camping in the great outdoors. When it comes time to get a healthy dose of city life, Oklahoma City is located a mere 15 minutes from downtown Edmond. As the State Capitol and home to half a million people, Oklahoma City and its “western” heritage and spirit is alive and well with many Oklahomans likely to be wearing boots and a cowboy hat in the city streets. With such popular local attractions as being the National Cowboy and Western Heritage Museum (a unique national memorial to the American cowboy), the Remington Park Race Track, Frontier City Theme Park, and the Red Earth Indian Center, the essence of Oklahoma City is strongly rooted in its strong ties with its historic western heritage. Sports enthusiasts have plenty of opportunities to play on some of the nation’s best golf courses and tennis facilities while sports fans can watch live games year-round by taking in an Oklahoma RedHawks baseball game or a Blazers hockey game.
