This is a great stop if you are on route 44 going through Tulsa. It only takes a few minutes to view the historical bronze statues. You will not want to miss this place. It is a hidden jewel of Tulsa.

My wife and I where in Tulsa for a friends wedding, it also happened to be our first time in Tulsa. We where driving around the downtown area and just happened to end up along the river and came upon the plaza. The bronze sculptures are just amazingly detailed. It a great place to stop by and see.

We spent spring break in Tulsa and I insisted we stop to see the plaza. We walked across the Route 66 walkway and the wind was absolutely amazing! My teen who had not wanted to stop was laughing and enjoying himself. He even caught the representation of the flags reflecting the route. Doesn't cost anything to do this, so why... More

Take a walk along the midpoint on the Mother Road. It may look like any other place but there is history here. Think of all of the masses of people that have passed through here. America's vein flowing through the heartland.

Did not find it the easiest place to get to in a car, but definitely worth the effort. The bridge over Route 66, the Cyrus Avery Memorial Bridge, and the plaza with its sculptures and flags are some of the photo opportunities at this historical site.

My wife and I visited the Cyrus Avery Centennial Plaza since we have been visiting the different Route 66 attractions in Oklahoma as of late. The old 11th Street bridge was built before Route 66, and was the only concrete bridge west of the Mississippi River upon completion. The plaza itself contains a giant sculpture of the intersection of a... More
