Our Mission

Gathering Place is a world-class riverfront park designed to welcome all Tulsans to a vibrant and inclusive community space that engages, educates, and excites!

A project of George Kaiser Family Foundation, Gathering Place is committed to creating a culture that supports the overall mission of equal opportunity for all. 

We strive to create a community space that is a recreational, civic, and cultural destination for all walks of life to enjoy, promoting inclusivity in our city.

We are passionate about environmental sustainability, continuously striving to enhance the River Parks system while preserving and improving the native ecosystems that have called the Park home for many decades before it was named Gathering Place.

We are focused on the future of Tulsa, providing free educational opportunities for all ages and abilities to learn through play. 

Gathering Place aims to serve as a cornerstone for our vibrant community while improving social, economic, and environmental sustainability in Tulsa.
