It has a great walking/biking trail all along the Arkansas River with lots of wildlife sculptures along the path. There's also a playground that the kids loved. Lots of green grass areas to rest.

The walk across the Arkansas River on the old railroad bridge is well worth the trip to this river park.

We watched the fireworks from the park area at 41st and Riverside. I did not realize there is a splash park and playground equipment there. My grandson had a blast splashing in the water and playing before the fireworks started.

Tulsa has many great parks and River Parks is a jewel. It has places to play, public art, a fantastic waterpark, and trails that go on and on. I love spending time here and especially at sunset. Other cities should see what Tulsa has done.

Great green space. More cities should follow Tulsa's lead these parks stretch for miles up an down the river. Just a beautiful place to run or walk or ride a bike or just sit and watch the river roll by.

There are many open areas friendly to dogs but it is also shared with frisbee golf and picnic goers. There is no formal fenced off area I know of as of yet, but if you were to appeal to the parks authority....maybe one day.

I have seen many birthday parties at the 41st and Riverside pavilion. You might contact Tulsa Parks and Rec for more information on how to reserve space.
