Went here for a run after work. If it wasn’t for the heat I would have went farther. Lots of parking. Path was paved and ran parallel to the river. Separate lanes for bikers and runners/walkers which I appreciated.

We appreciated that there are two different paths: one for jogging/walking and one for biking. The play areas are unique for children young and old. There could be more water stations along the path.

Tulsa is blessed to have an extensive bike and walking trail along Riverside Parkway next to the Arkansas River. There are three dozen or so bronze sculptures along the pathway. Stop along the river on sever resting areas and take in the beautiful sights.

Rive parks really is the best thing about Tulsa, not many US cities seem to be investing money in outdoor parks and recreation yet Tulsa is consistently making their parks better and better and it is very refreshing to see!

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.
