This is a beautiful park along the river close to the downtown area. During the day people on Roller Blades, throwing frisbees, walking dogs, and/or picnicking. Dusk is a perfect time to take a walk over the extra wide covered bridge across the river. It is also a perfect place for a marriage proposal.

Running for miles along the Arkansas river, the is an urban treat. Great for cycling, running, walking, or picnicking. There is a massive expansion project that means the trail on the East side of the river is closed, at least for now.

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
