Community Overview

Newcastle is a fast growing community where metropolitan amenities meet small town living. The city of 7500 is located just south of the Oklahoma City metro area and is the largest city in McClain County. It is one of the state's most desirable and attractive cities in which to do business and live.

Newcastle sprawls through the South Canadian River valley from Oklahoma City in the north to Norman in the southeast. It is the gateway to the Tri-City communities of Blanchard, Newcastle and Tuttle. With 26 miles of state highway running directly through the city, Newcastle offers prime frontage on Interstate 35 to the south and Interstate 44 to the north, with immediate access to the HE Bailey Turnpike (to Lawton/Fort Sill). Will Rogers International Airport is just 10 minutes away.
