“Nice place to walk around”
Reviewed May 12, 2012

Nice to walk around on a nice day. They have a pretty good disk golf course. Half the time there is a big part of the park that is under construction or repair or is just closed off.

“LOVE the River Parks”
Reviewed April 26, 2012

I am new to Tulsa and am lucky enough to live half a block from the RiverParks. I use the trails all the time for biking, running, roller blading and walking my dog. It's so pretty along the Arkansas River. Can hardly wait for the Gathering Place to be underway and to experience the transformation.

“Fun area to relax”
Reviewed April 23, 2012

This is a great place to walk, ride bikes or jog along the river. There are play areas for the children and places you could bring your lunch to eat along the river. We just brought our books to read and enjoyed the sunshine.

“Miles of beautiful new trails”
Reviewed April 23, 2012

When I first started running River Parks in 2007, the trails were narrow and it was a bit harrowing to run along with bikes. In the last couple of years, they've been renovating and widening the trails, and making separate lanes for feet and wheels. It's almost complete, with only a mile or two in the middle still waiting for re-pavement. They've also renovated many of the amenities, so the bathrooms and water fountains are new in many spots as well.

“The single best thing Tulsa has going for it”
Reviewed April 6, 2012

If you like the outdoors, then the Tulsa River Parks are the jewel of Tulsa. The extensive trail network is beautiful and extremely well maintained. I've been using the trails weekly for over 10 years, and with money donated from charitable foundations, the rail network keeps getting better and better every year.
