Woodward, Oklahoma is located on the eastern edge of the Oklahoma and Texas panhandles. Before settlers arrived in 1887, the area was home to Kiowa, Comanche, Cheyenne, and Arapaho tribes. The town is rich with history, from Indian wars to natural disasters, to the rise of the Oklahoma Oil Industry. Community residents are well known as very friendly, hospitable people who stick together through good and bad times.

Visitors should make a stop at the Veterans Memorial Center or the Plains Indians & Pioneers Museum to get a taste of history. For outdoor fun, head to Rotary Park, or to the Goetzinger Walking Trails for seven miles of scenic views.

The community takes pride in its eco-friendliness and commitment to clean, sustainable energy. Woodward serves as a hub for renewable energy, with 38,000 megawatts of wind power in development.

Community residents enjoy cultural entertainment at both the Woodward Arts Theatre and Jose Adams Cultural Center. The theatre was originally built in the 1920s and restored in the ‘80s.

The citizens of Woodward and an incredible number of volunteers from all over the state and country have helped cleanup and rebuild from the recent tornadoes so the town can continue moving forward. We hold a special place in our hearts for Woodward, one of the 2011 Friendliest Small Towns in America, and would like to direct anyone willing to support them in their time of need to the Woodward Community Foundation, the official repository for contributions to help the victims of this disaster.

Woodward, Oklahoma is the center of Northwest Oklahoma! The people of Woodward and the surrounding areas are the friendliest all around. We are proud of who we are and we love to talk about it! We'll greet you on the sidewalk downtown or on the sidewalk at our Crystal Beach park. We have activities for everyone, from the waterpark to the Little Sahara. It's fun all year around! Fishing, 4-wheeling, horseback trail rides, Classic Bowl, Crystal Christmas, Downtown WestFest, gatherings at Boiling Springs, Run for Shelter, and so much more! We're friendly here, just ask anyone of us!!
