Discover What Newcastle Has to Offer

Newcastle is a blossoming community just south of the Oklahoma City Metro. Already the largest city in McClain County—and one of the area’s most desirable places to live—Newcastle is experiencing a boom in both residential and commercial development. Newcastle offers a small-town rural feel while being just 20 minutes from almost anywhere in central Oklahoma. It’s a family-friendly community with plenty of local flavor right alongside your everyday essentials.

Newcastle School Districts

The Newcastle School District, home of the Racers, serves approximately 2,200 students across four campuses—an early childhood center, an elementary school, and a middle and high school. Boasting some of the state’s highest-rated schools for math and reading proficiency, as well as graduation rate, Newcastle’s teachers and instructional programs are recognized among the best in the nation. Newcastle Public Schools also offers a broad range of athletic, academic, and performing arts activities, as well as a robust mix of college prep courses, clubs, and organizations.

Getting Around Newcastle

Bisected by I-44, the commercial area of Newcastle is divided into two sections, referred to by the locals as “new Newcastle” to the north and “old Newcastle” to the south. “Old Newcastle” sits directly on HWY 62 (Main St.) and runs through the heart of the city’s charming downtown, where you’ll find all of the district’s school, local businesses, and community resources like the library, post office, and parks. A quick jaunt across I-44 (less than a mile) will take you to “New Newcastle,” also known as TriCity, which is situated on HWY 37. Here you’ll find larger chain retail and restaurants right next door to local favorites. In addition to the state highways, the area’s grid of county roads and streets makes it easy to navigate the properties, neighborhoods, and residential developments of the city’s rural outskirts.

Travel Time From Newcastle to Surrounding Areas

Newcastle is the ideal metro suburb, spanning 5 major highways—HWY 37, HWY 62, HWY 9, and I-44—and just 10 minutes from I-35 via HWY 9/H.E. Bailey Spur. From Chickasha to Choctaw, Mustang to Moore, and everything in between, it’s all easy to get to and it won’t take you long. Newcastle is also part of the Tri-City area, which includes nearby Tuttle and Blanchard.

Things to do in Newcastle

Although Newcastle is just minutes from the abundant amenities of larger cities, there is plenty to do much closer to home. Veterans Park, a 25-acre park in the heart of “old Newcastle” is home to the Newcastle Public Library, a newly-completed splash pad, soccer and baseball fields, a walking/jogging track, and endless expanses of green space, where the city holds Easter egg hunts, Independence Day celebrations, Christmas in the Park, Throwdown Thursdays (with food trucks, live music, and yard games), and farmer’s markets in the summer.  

Magnolia Blossom Ranch and The Barn at Country Club, just west of TriCity, always have something going on, like wine tasting events, yoga, fiber arts workshops, and the annual PacToberFest with a pumpkin patch, kid-friendly activities, and up-close interactions with alpacas. You can also try your luck at Newcastle Casino; Riverwind Casino, at the intersection of I-35 and HWY 9; or Goldsby Gaming Center, in nearby Goldsby.
