Residents of Springs at Woodlands South don’t have to look very far for outdoor entertainment. There are a number of parks that offer amenities for people of all ages, and we’ve assembled a list of five that stand out:
1. LaFortune Park
5202 S Hudson Ave
This midtown park covers 270 acres, and offers a golf course, 5K running trail with spectacular views, playgrounds, a seasonal pool, tennis courts, baseball fields, and batting cages. Tulsa residents can meet to run on a mostly paved path, or have a play date on nice playground equipment that accommodates children of all ages.
2. Mohawk Park
5701 E 36th St N
Mohawk Park—covering 2,820 acres—is ideal for simple hiking trips. The peaceful trails are excellent for viewing and photographing wildlife, and families can take part in a small gathering or a larger reunion at one of the picnic shelters. Additional features include a large splash pad and play area, a fishing pond, and golf course.
3. Owen Park
560 N Maybelle Ave
Owen Park opened as Tulsa's first municipal park in 1910. This small, lesser-known park is a quiet spot where you can take children to play at the splash pad after visiting the Tulsa Children's Museum, located next door. Owen Park’s beautiful scenery truly makes it a hidden treasure.
4. Hunter Park
5804 E 91st St
Those looking to take a walk or enjoy some disc golf should check out Hunter Park. Beat the heat on their small splash pad, get a game going on the basketball courts, or invite some friends for a picnic or cookout. There’s plenty to take advantage at this friendly community park in the summertime.
5. Woodward Park
2435 S Peoria Ave
Visitors searching for a park to take a stroll should look no further than Woodward Park. This beloved Tulsa treasure was created to give visitors the opportunity to experience several specialty gardens such as the Tulsa Rose Garden, as well as other botanical gardens and the arboretum. Woodward Park is a favorite for photographers to take pictures of bridal parties and high school seniors.
