I enjoy walking South from the North End beginning at 11th st.'SouthWest Boulevard until I want to turn around and return. Now I either have to drive down to 41st and begin there or double back a few times un at the North end. Oh bother will they complete on time.

Nice "park" considering it is a narrow band of green between a major thoroughfare and often a series of sandbars with puddles of water called a river. Some parts very nice, others scream for maintenance. Most sections safe but others have a reputation for less than so...

All I have ever done is walk the River Parks. I felt safe and the trails are great. People are respectful and friendly.

There are over 80 miles of bicycle trails in Tulsa. We had a grand time on a weekend on these well maintained trials. We enjoyed the riverside trail south of 54th st down past 76th. One that at time of this report there was trail closure north of 27th. We regret not biking this northern river trail as it was... More

Free concerts at the park on Sunday evenings. Great trails and you can rent bikes for free with a CC. Love all the sitting areas and it is right on the river. You can fish the river. A few restaurants line it if you want to stop for a bite to eat. Always well manicured. Right now it is under... More

Great place to go and walk the trail after a long day at the office. The walking oath is near the river. Many people were out in the trail but it was not overly crowded.

Tulsa is so fortunate to have this park. It is miles long and runs along the Arkansas River. There are paved trails, playgrounds, splash pads, disc golf, big trees and beautiful views. This is the place where Tulsans go to meet friends, bike, jog, walk their dogs, and even fish. Good bird sightings from pelicans to bald eagles and Hawks?... More

If you are in Tulsa for business and you are staying near downtown and want to go for a run, ask your desk clerk for directions to the River Parks. It is one to two miles from downtown, depending on your location but they have limited parking if you want to drive there. The view in the early morning or... More

The River Parks are a great place to be in Tulsa during the summer. In the evening, cool breezes from the river are a welcome respite from the day's heat. The sunsets from the eastern side of the river are terrific.
