Welcome to Tulsa! No better blend of the past, present and future can be found than in Downtown Tulsa. Architectural marvels from the 1920's coupled with myriads of unique bars and restaurants provides your attendees with abundant options for memorable experiences in the heart of Tulsa. Tour any of our seven downtown districts and find out what makes Tulsa special. Tulsa is the only city of its size with its own professional ballet, opera and symphony. Make sure you visit our world-class museums, the Philbrook Museum of Art and Gilcrease Museum. Tulsa also has the urban park A Gathering Place for Tulsa, a result of the largest private gift to a public park surpassing the Central Park Conservancy in New York. The first phase of the park, spanning 66.5 acres, opens late 2017. Thank you for visiting and be sure to come back soon!

Expected to attract one million visitors annually, A Gathering Place for Tulsa will transform over 100 acres into an urban park along Tulsa's Arkansas River. The first phase of 66.5 acres is expected to be completed in late 2017, providing Tulsans and visitors with a world-class centralized park and space to play, relax and gather. A result of the largest private gift to a public park in the history of the United States, features of the $400 million park designed by renowned landscape architect Michael Van Valkenburgh Associates will include:
⚬ A five-acre Adventure Playground with themed playground equipment. The tallest tower in the playground will be over 30 feet tall. The playground will include a Land of the River Giants, where children can learn about the different species that reside in the Arkansas River.
⚬ A pond and wetland gardens with a multifunctional boathouse. The pond will have multiple opportunities for recreation, including boating, fishing, and wildlife habitat observation.
⚬ The water playground Mist Mountain for an exciting and active way to beat Tulsa's sumer heat. Mist Mountain will be near changing areas, restrooms, concessions, and an 18,000 square foot furnished dining area for convenience.
⚬ In total, the park will have over 4,000 trees spanning 80 species. 30 designated preservation zones will protect many of the trees that are up to 200 years old. See the different species and tree types the park will have here.
