With countless attractions, there is plenty to do for visitors of all ages and interests at Gathering Place. From paddling at Peggy's Pond to enjoying a concert on the QuikTrip Great Lawn, every trip to Gathering Place promises fun for all. Each of our attractions is strategically designed to promote play, learning, interaction and relaxation as our community gathers together.
Gathering Place is located just south of downtown Tulsa, along the east bank of the Arkansas River between 21st and 31st Street on Riverside Drive. Main entrances will be located between 26th Place and 31st Street on Riverside Drive.
We are working hard to ensure that you will have ample parking opportunities so that your visit to Gathering Place is enjoyable and convenient. There are parking lots close to the Boathouse and Lodge, as well as lots adjacent to Riverside Drive on both north and southbound lanes. You will find an overflow parking lot available at the corner of 31st and Riverside and close offsite parking at 31st Street.
Public transportation to Gathering Place will be available. Guests can take the existing Tulsa Transit Bus Route 105 and exit along S. Peoria. After exiting, guests can use the newly constructed city sidewalk or dedicated bike lane on 31st St. to walk or bike the remaining 0.5 miles to Gathering Place. In 2019, the Bus Rapid Transit system will provide dedicated bus stops at 31st & Peoria and increase service to Route 105. In addition, once routes are finalized, the Downtown Circulator will provide direct drop off service to Gathering Place.
