This year, Spring Break at Gathering Place, sponsored by the AEP Foundation on behalf of Public Service Company of Oklahoma (PSO), will expand its entertainment and event offerings to kids of all ages. For the first time, activities will take place across all 66.5 acres of the park and will include new adventures and educational opportunities never offered before Spring Break!
As a part of the Explore & Imagine program, Gathering Place is partnering with more than 18 local organizations to offer free, hands-on activities themed around nature, art, literacy, wellness, and STEAM.
Gathering Place is pleased to provide free shuttle transportation to and from the Park! Guests can avoid the crowds by parking and riding a fast and convenient shuttle to the Park. The shuttle buses pick up guests every 20 minutes from Tulsa Community College’s metro campus parking lot and drop off guests at Williams Lodge at Gathering Place.

Gathering Place is partnering with New Hope Oklahoma to help collect donations for their upcoming summer camp! Donation items needed include art supplies, flashlights, sunscreen, books, toiletries, and more. Drop off your donations to Williams Lodge starting March 12 through March 20.
