The walk across the Arkansas River on the old railroad bridge is well worth the trip to this river park.

We watched the fireworks from the park area at 41st and Riverside. I did not realize there is a splash park and playground equipment there. My grandson had a blast splashing in the water and playing before the fireworks started.

We visited river parks this morning as it is a way for my spouse to enjoy the trails with a scooter. My spouse has mobility issues and uses a scooter to go longer distances. We set off on a comfortable morning temp. Breeze blowing, birds were singing. Started at the restaurant, considered renting a bike but couldn't figure out the... More

From fireworks to playgrounds to a place to have a picnic this park has it all. I have gone to this park many times over the years and it is well maintained and safe.

Tulsa has many great parks and River Parks is a jewel. It has places to play, public art, a fantastic waterpark, and trails that go on and on. I love spending time here and especially at sunset. Other cities should see what Tulsa has done.

It was a beautiful day to be out walking but its extra nice on the river...Love the fountains & the bridge, but they are working on the "Gathering Place" now & it will be so much better...our Riverside is one of the most pretties places in Tulsa!

Great green space. More cities should follow Tulsa's lead these parks stretch for miles up an down the river. Just a beautiful place to run or walk or ride a bike or just sit and watch the river roll by.

We had a very brief trip to Tulsa (from Edmond, OK) and before heading home, we headed over to the River Parks area for a nice walk. There is some construction in the area, getting ready to make things even better, but it was great. We parked in the lot provided, around 41st Street and walked about 2 l/2 miles... More
