A great place to sit and catch your breath amid the energy of the Park, the Richard A.

With a thousand lineal feet of rock towers, this unique garden feels like a world of its own.
An homage to the dramatic Oklahoma sky, the The Helmerich Trust Sky Garden provides an intense horticultural moment of Gingko trees, showy blooms and shrubs among distinctive walkways. This is a space visited frequently due to the variety of seasonal flowers carefully selected by our Director of Horticulture.
