Tulsa QUIKTRIP PLAZA
River Parks. For Tulsans, those two
words deﬁne a natural resource like
no other, an inextricable part of
our past, present and future. The
Arkansas River, whether brimming
bank-to-bank or meandering
around vast sandbars, continues to
make its mark on the community
birthed along its banks.
The River Parks stretch along 10 miles of the
Arkansas with spacious dual trails, serving an
estimated one million visitors per year. The trails
also include lighting, park furnishings and other
amenities. Additionally, the QuikTrip Plaza at 41st
Street and Riverside draws visitors and families
with its water features and playgrounds.
Festivals, concerts, reworks and more draw
thousands to the park each year for outdoor
entertainment. Fishing, kayaking, rowing, rugby
and disc golf offer fun and leisure year round. The
park is also home to the city’s largest collection of
bronze wildlife sculptures and other art.
For a slightly more rugged terrain, check out
the Turkey Mountain Urban Wilderness Area,
with 300 acres of heavily-wooded crests and
valleys connected by a maze of dirt trails coveted
by mountain bikers, cross-country runners and
equestrians. The summit offers an imposing sweep
of Tulsa from north to south along the river corridor
and reinforces the wonder of a green haven in the
midst of the city.
River Parks is a unique partnership of nature
and urbanization, so close to home, yet the perfect
