This place is awesome for joggers, bicyclists, dog walkers, or just out for a walk. I walk this park lots of times and the trails just go one endless for miles. This is a must go to place anytime of day.

With a picturesque view of downtown Tulsa, this park is beautiful. I visited during Scotfest and was so impressed by how clean the staff kept the park during the entire three day event. The trash was never overflowing and the seating areas were kept clean....More

Beautiful area along the river! I loved that walking paths and bike paths were separate. It would be nice if the river could be fuller. I understand there is a dam somewhere up river that perhaps they could open a bit more.

It really depends where you are in the park system as to how your experience will rate. There are some excellent amenities along the trails, and there are some areas that are a bit rough.

Tulsa has preserved much of the Arkansas River course through the city as forested parkland, well designed for walking, biking, and other activities. It is a fantastic amenity right in the middle of the city. If you are visiting the city, take a break and...More

The parks trails continue to improve. If you are passing through and need to stretch, pull up to a parking place and take a walk along the paved trails. Very relaxing.

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.
