    TULSA COUNTY, Okla. - Quick facts:

    • Upgrades proposed for a local park include an Australian football field.
    • Proponents said the sport is picking up steam in Green Country.
    • The upgrades are dependent on the Vision2025 tax proposal.

    An $18 million plan for a local park includes major upgrades and a room for a sport that many area residents do not know about.

    The upgrades proposed for Chandler Park include a field for Australian football.

    Australian football, often confused with rugby, has a team in Tulsa called the Tulsa Buffaloes.

    Proponents said the sport is picking up steam in Green Country.

    There is no current field in the Tulsa area.

    Other proposed changes for Chandler Park include splash pads and camping grounds.

    The upgrades are dependent on the Vision2025 tax proposal.

    $4 million from that would begin the process.
