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

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. A commendable feat given the amount of people attending the festival. My only complaint (and... More

This is such as nice feature in Tulsa. You can park at various points and start jogging or walking or biking or rollerblading on smooth paved surfaces. The walking path is separate from the biking path, which is much safer. There are some benches along the way but there should be more. It was hot when we visited, so a... 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.

Our River Park area just continues to grow and attract so many activities...I drive by there daily and have yet to see it idle...we are so fortunate for those visions from years past who germinated the idea AND MORE IMPORTANTLY Mr. George Kaiser et al who are advancing it to new heights...now if we could only keep the water level...

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 enjoy this lovely "linear park."
