Walking by the Arkansas River, surrounded by beautiful greenery...This is how all parks should be. It was a rainy day, so there weren't many other park goers, but even if there had been, there was more than enough space for everyone. It was so peaceful, if I lived in Tulsa this would be a daily spot.

River Parks is a unique feature of Tulsa that other cities simply can’t duplicate. The Arkansas River runs generally north/south through town separating West Tulsa from Midtown and East Tulsa, and River Parks runs along about 10 linear miles of primarily the east bank. There’s a tree-lined bike/running path along that entire length, and there are spots where the park... More

The River Parks follow the banks of the Arkansas river for miles! There are biking trails, walking trails, disc golf courses, beautiful statues and fountains, lighted parking, restroom facilities, and lush greenery (in spring and summer). It is so big that hundreds can be enjoying it at one time without feeling crowded.

Tulsa River Parks have come a long way since I moved here 9 years ago. The city has followed through on improving the paths and there are miles of walking and biking trails. Nature is good for the body and soul. These parks and trails are a treasure for Tulsans and visitors to get out and enjoy. Improvements are still... More

Forty-five miles of bike/trike/walk/run/skate paths border the Arkansas River, with cafes, playgrounds, and rest areas for all to enjoy. Some use these paths to journey to their jobs, others for exercise...all paved and separated for walkers...drop-dead lovely!

I have ran riverside river parks every weekend for almost two years now. With a comprehensive 14 mile paved loop, it has it all. With an off shoot to south tulsa at 71st, and split foot and bike paths... there's nothing short of perfect. Things to watch out for: Dont run at night alone. Dont run on the west side... More
