(NBC) -- A generous donation from an Oklahoma City company is helping Moore rebuild a park that was destroyed in last May's tornado.

Little River Park in Moore was hit hard by last spring's tornado.

Roxanne Rudy and her family lost their home last spring to the Moore tornado.

But nearly a year later, they're back, living in a newly built home in the same spot, with Little River Park in their backyard.

3,600 trees were taken by the storm and now the park is an eye sore to Rudy.

Reconstruction of the park with new trails, pavilions and playgrounds is underway. But with the help of Devon Energy and a $200,000 dollar, the park will stand out.

It has helped some residents in the neighborhood say will bring closure.

The Little River Park Project is part of Devon's two and a half million dollar commitment to help the community continue to recover.

Residents can look forward to a pirate-themed playground and a fun splash pad.
