Outdoors & Recreation

Whether you’re looking to enjoy a scenic stroll along the Arkansas River or zoom through the air in an epic zipline adventure, Tulsa has outdoor offerings for everyone. Kick back in a lounge chair alongside Peggy’s Pond while the kiddos play the day away at the Gathering Place or breathe in the crisp air during an early morning hike at Turkey Mountain Urban Wilderness just a 10-minute drive from downtown. 

Boots, Bikes or Boats 

Looking to unleash your inner cowboy? While that’s not all we have going on, we do have you covered with experiences like Meadowlake Ranch where you can ride horses, skeet shoot, atlatl (Google it – but in a new tab) and more. If wheels are more your thing, check out our River Parks bike and walking trail system connecting more than 100 miles of our city and mountain bike trails galore. 

Frequently home championships like Major League Fishing’s REDCREST or Bassmaster, Tulsa and surrounding Green Country are home to some of the best fishing in the world. Rent a boat at Keystone Lake (just a 20-minute drive from downtown) and see if you can break any world records–it happens all the time.
