This is such as nice feature in Tulsa. You can park at various points and start jogging or walking or biking or rollerblading on smooth paved surfaces. The walking path is separate from the biking path, which is much safer. There are some benches along...More

Beautiful area along the river! I loved that walking paths and bike paths were separate. It would be nice if the river could be fuller. I understand there is a dam somewhere up river that perhaps they could open a bit more.

Whether I am walking down there or I am listening to music and smoking a nice cigar while people watching, Tulsa's River Parks is the place to be.

It really depends where you are in the park system as to how your experience will rate. There are some excellent amenities along the trails, and there are some areas that are a bit rough.

Tulsa has preserved much of the Arkansas River course through the city as forested parkland, well designed for walking, biking, and other activities. It is a fantastic amenity right in the middle of the city. If you are visiting the city, take a break and...More

The parks trails continue to improve. If you are passing through and need to stretch, pull up to a parking place and take a walk along the paved trails. Very relaxing.

We live within walking distance of Riverparks - use it almost daily. Really enjoy the improvements - I feel the separated lanes for walking, jogging, bike-riding are much safer. Always enjoyed the 31st Street Bridge; we love to see the birds and occasional mammals along...More

There are many open areas friendly to dogs but it is also shared with frisbee golf and picnic goers. There is no formal fenced off area I know of as of yet, but if you were to appeal to the parks authority....maybe one day.

I have seen many birthday parties at the 41st and Riverside pavilion. You might contact Tulsa Parks and Rec for more information on how to reserve space.
