THE WELL'S STORY
The vision for The Well and the reason it was included in the Cleveland County's 5-year master plan to help make residents the healthiest and happiest they can be. When the community approved the plan, The Well's team traveled the country looking at places that are successful at bringing together health resources, community classes, and events that everyone wants to be a part of.
From that time and research, they developed a plan for an inclusive hub to host both indoor and outdoor activities that brings together health, wellness, and knowledge to residents and visitors of Cleveland County. The two-story community building has 14,000 sq. ft. of classroom and meeting space, but residents may also visit The Well in a virtual environment for events and classes. The public will also have access to a variety of health services and professionals through the Norman Regional Health System.
Cleveland County Commissioner Darry Stacy said,
Our vision for The Well and the reason we included it in the master plan is to make residents of Cleveland County the healthiest and happiest they can be...The Well will be a healthy destination for individuals, families and communities, no matter if they visit in-person or from their homes.
The Well had its grand opening in September 2021, and built a partnership with the Cleveland County Health Department and Moore Norman Technology Center. In 2022, it became the new home of the Norman Farm Market.
