If you're a Springs at Woodlands South resident, you're probably planning on spending the bulk of your free time this summer by our resort-style pool or taking advantage of our outdoor kitchen and grill with friends. However, if you're looking for a change of pace, there are a number of fun and affordable things to do in Tulsa this summer near our apartment community. Here are four recommendations:
1. Food Truck Wednesdays
Wednesdays from 11:30 a.m. to 1:30 p.m.
Guthrie Green, 111 East Matthew B. Brady St
Need a change of pace during your lunch hour? Come check out the great lineup of food trucks at Guthrie Green where you can score some amazing eats like Meltdown gourmet grilled cheese sandwiches and Lola's Gypsy Caravan. Pair that with fresh air and live music and you've got an outstanding lunch break!
2. Summer's Fifth Night at Utica Square
Thursdays from 7:00 p.m. to 9:00 p.m.
Utica Square, 21st St and Utica

3. Slide the City
Saturday, June 18 from 9:00 a.m. to 7:00 p.m.
1630 Main St
Back by popular demand, Tulsa is lining Main Street with its 1,000-foot slip n' slide! For a small price (from $10 to $40), you can feel like a kid again as you take on this enormous water slide. However, spectating can be just as fun and is completely free!
4. CYPHER 120 Live Music and Slam Poetry
