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...

We were in Tulsa for a few days and had some extra time on our hands after visiting family. Trip Advisor suggested this venue so we checked it out. We could not have been happier with our choice. The flowers and vegetation were wonderful. Even on a chilly day we were pleasantly occupied with the offerings in the park. I... More

Beautiful place to take pictures. Trees were in bloom along with the tulips! Take your camera, worth a drive.

My husband and I stopped by this attraction and could not believe that it was free. We wandered through delightful paths and a koi pond, enjoyed the herb garden where we could smell and taste and the volunteer we encountered was so knowledgeable and obviously loved what she did. We chatted some time about how it was built by donations... More

I am sure in spring this place is fabulous, but my grandchildren and I loved it in December when the greenhouses were overflowing with poinsiettas and the orchids and cacti were glorious.

We love this spot, because we like the beauty, the care by dedicated volunteers, and the variety that each time we wonder at something we didn't notice before. It is truly an oasis that someone could spend 20 minutes in a busy schedule to rejuvenate or two hours reading a book in the shaded bench in the spring.
