We always love going here. They have done a fantastic job of planting and caring for all the things here to look at. If you are in Tulsa I would suggest going here and walking around. IT is beautiful and the staff is very friendly and helpful explaining things.

The staff here is great and the surroundings are perfect for a picnic. There's so many different displays and the volunteers are very knowledgeable. Fun to check out the Tulsa Garden Center mansion and also the gift shop when you're in the area.

Had some free time and visited gardens. Pretty large complex with a variety of environments. I was surprised with the number of flowering plants they had considering that it was mid-August. Several families were picnicking, enjoying the large park. It is free. Plan on 3-4 hours, bring water, and wear comfortable shoes.

My wife and I, and two of our grandchildren, visited the Gardens on a Saturday. This is a great place to take pictures and learn from the knowledgeable staff. I recommend coupling a visit here with the Rose Garden and the greenhouse behind the Tulsa Historical Society mansion.

Our large group (50) Master Gardeners touring the gardens and was very impressed with the knowledge of our tour guides! Since our group ask more detailed and unique questions I was very surprised that for the most part they knew the answers. They had lots of humor mixed with that knowledge too! Beautiful area of the garden center and well... More

This was part fo the Tulsa Garden Center, which is located in Woodward Park. Everyhing is free of charge and you can walk around and learn about so many diffeent kinds of home vegetables that can be grown. They don't harvest anything here to sell or dinate. Since it is for educational purposes, they will mostly just leave the plants... More

Nice, nice, nice small garden. The water features help the flow of the space. A thought of thought has gone into making this a very visually appealing garden.

Now this is truly a hidden gem...this garden is hidden at the very back of Woodward Park, behind the Rose Garden (far east boundary of both places). It is only open from April through October as it should be because our climate doesn't offer much in terms of winter flora....anyway, if you're looking for demonstrations of types of plantings that...
