We had a very brief trip to Tulsa (from Edmond, OK) and before heading home, we headed over to the River Parks area for a nice walk. There is some construction in the area, getting ready to make things even better, but it was great. We parked in the lot provided, around 41st Street and walked about 2 l/2 miles... More

PLACE FOR FRISBEE GOLF AND PICNICS AND EXERCISE AND MORE! Sculptures and water features abound. At 41st there is a restaurant and music and a walking bridge. A small waterfall near bridge is relaxing to watch and listen to. In July, a popular 4th of July Fireworks Celebration Display is to be enjoyed. Free concerts on river in summer in... More

Runs for 10+ miles on the east side of the Arkansas (after the park work gets finished). Dual bike/running trails for much of the distance. Connects to other paths to allow one to get a huge workout without having to deal with much crossing traffic. Plenty of shade also helps during the summer.

A lot to do here. With the new Gathering Place under construction the future of River Parks has never been brighter. Temporary inconvenience this construction. We like to drive Riverside. Can't go through all the way until the Gathering Place is finished. 21st thru 41st is closed. Can't wait till it re-opens. In the meantime we still drive what parts... More

The Tulsa River parks seem short on amenities as the park is actually about 7 miles long. Starting from SouthWest Boulivard in Down Town Tulsa, the parks extend along the river till almost 81st street (perhaps farther). There are places to park at 15th street, 31st street, and a further down. Most of the park is little more than walking... More

I wouldn't be here after dark; however, in the daytime and when the sun is setting....it's magical to be with the one you love! I highly recommend walking around down here! Carry a pocket knife though. The locals say there are muggings.

I enjoy walking South from the North End beginning at 11th st.'SouthWest Boulevard until I want to turn around and return. Now I either have to drive down to 41st and begin there or double back a few times un at the North end. Oh bother will they complete on time.

Nice "park" considering it is a narrow band of green between a major thoroughfare and often a series of sandbars with puddles of water called a river. Some parts very nice, others scream for maintenance. Most sections safe but others have a reputation for less than so...

All I have ever done is walk the River Parks. I felt safe and the trails are great. People are respectful and friendly.
