“Great bike and jogging path”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 9, 2012

Recent improvements to the bike/jogging path has made this a great place to get outdoors (and a popular one!). While the improvements are not completed yet, they are well on the way and what is done is excellent. Many parts have separate lanes for joggers and bikers. So, get outside and enjoy!

“A beautiful and very accessible public park with an extensive running/walking/biking path newly renovated in many parts.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 2, 2012 via mobile

A great place to spend the morning or afternoon walking with the family or exercising with your dog. There are great amenities being built into the path with great places to take a respite after a long trek down the river. A true Tulsa gem.

“A city treasure”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 22, 2011

This park has one of the longest trails in Tulsa if not THE longest trail. It is well lit at night and tended to carefully. A local philanthrapist donates many funds to the River Parks sector of the city and it shows. Quality throughout. At the 41st street light, there is a nice park for the children funded by Quiktrip. At the 21st street light, there is a restaurant. The food is all greasy bar food but the setting is nice.

“An incredible community asset available to all! Take advantage!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 19, 2011

I stumbled upon what I consider a gem of the Tulsa community. The parks along the river in Tulsa are an incredible asset and as a visitor I was so pleased to take advantage of a gorgeous trail system. The trail area is extensive and incredibly maintained including landscaping and public art. There's adequate room on the trail for walkers, biking, roller skating and the patrons on this trail are very knowledgable about adhereing to safety for the appropriate lanes depending upon their use. Next time I'm in Tulsa, I plan to bring my bicycle!
