Sports Courts

Get your blood pumping with a game of basketball, volleyball, street soccer or street hockey at one of our five sports courts. In the evening, the courts are equipped with night-lights so the fun does not have to end early.

Skate Park

Skate your heart out, Tulsa! Active recreation and outdoor social space are vital for thriving communities and we cannot wait for you to catch air in this adrenaline-filled area. Skate Park has easy access to parking and is immaculately lit up in the evening to provide a safe experience.

Four Seasons Garden

A great place to sit and catch your breath amid the energy of the Park, the Richard A. Williford Family Four Seasons Garden provides protection from the summer sun as it artfully celebrates the native landscape. With a thousand lineal feet of rock towers, this unique garden feels like a world of its own.

Sky Garden

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.

Swing Hill

Experience pure exhilaration as you swing from the highest point in the Park with an unobstructed view of downtown Tulsa. At 56 feet of elevation above Peggy’s Pond, you will truly feel the sensation of flying.

ONEOK Boathouse

From the signature restaurant Vista at the Boathouse to the Cabinet of Wonder, the ONEOK Boathouse acts as a social gathering hot spot as well as an educational space for all ages.

QuikTrip Great Lawn

At the heart of Gathering Place are three expansive lawns: the QuikTrip Great Lawn, Riverview Lawn and Lakeview Lawn. These large multifunctional spaces will be a favorite place for concerts, picnics, Frisbee, reading and relaxing.

Chapman Adventure Playground

Chapman Adventure Playground is the place for kids to learn through play. In this five-acre kingdom, kids can let their imaginations run wild by exploring the playground’s signature towers, slides, climbing features, play gardens, a sand lot and water areas.

Mist Mountain

Mist Mountain is one of several elements within the Park that was designed specifically to provide an exciting and active way to beat the heat. Hydrate and engage in the various water features, including soaring water cannons, leaping jets of water, mist areas and interactive water fountains.

Peggy's Pond

Peggy's Pond is a major nexus of park activity that brings the excitement and tranquility of water into the main heart of the park, creating a more diverse landscape experience. Check out a paddle boat, kayak or canoe from the Boathouse and spend the afternoon on Peggy’s Pond.

Williams Lodge

The Williams Lodge is one of two iconic buildings in Gathering Place. This extroverted building anchors various park activities by offering amenities such as restrooms, cafes, educational activity rooms and indoor lounge spaces with eclectic furnishings.
