The kids of Tulsa County have 527 square miles to call their own. That’s a big yard to play in, and our kids have no shortage of soccer pitches, baseball and football fields, basketball and tennis courts, and every other type of athletic facility where they can feel the thrill of competition and, best of all, get away from the TV and computer. And we definitely have no shortage of athletic leagues. Tulsa kids can get involved in every type of organized activity through the Tulsa Parks: league sports (flag football, soccer, volleyball, baseball, basketball), tennis tournaments and fitness programs at Tulsa’s 141 municipal parks, 92 playgrounds (32 water playgrounds), 109 tennis courts, two skate parks, and nine community centers. Another great outlet for kids is the YMCA of Greater Tulsa, which has nine locations throughout Tulsa County. Tulsans enjoy an average of 227 days of sunshine a year and an average daily temperature of 61 degrees, so there are no excuses to stay indoors.
