Honor Heights Park is a 132-acre botanical garden and arboretum located at 1400 Honor Heights Drive in Muskogee, Oklahoma. It is a public park operated by the City of Muskogee.
In 1909, the City of Muskogee purchased the original 40 acres (160,000 m2) of Honor Heights Park for $4,500. Agency Hill was officially named Honor Heights Park in 1919 in honor of the soldiers of World War I.

Honor Heights Park is known for its azaleas and hosts the annual Azalea Festival each April. It features Symphony in the Park in June. It also includes the Conard Rose Garden, the C. Clay Harrell Arboretum, Art Johnson Memorial Dogwood Collection, Elbert L. Little, Jr. Native Tree Collection, floral gardens, white garden, and the Rainbow Division Memorial Amphitheater. It also features three trails: the Henry Bresser Nature Trail, the Audubon Trail, and the half-mile Stem Beach Trail, as well as picnic areas, two picnic shelters, a pavilion, a gift shop, gazebos, and public restrooms. The park is home to sports areas such as fishing in 5 lakes and ponds from the shore or fully-accessible fishing docks, a playground and splash pad, open play areas, and three tennis courts. The Papilion Butterfly House is open daily Mother's Day Weekend through the end of September. In November and December, the park becomes the Garden of Lights when the azaleas, with trees and other shrubbery, are covered with over one million bulbs.

In addition to its gardens, the Five Civilized Tribes Museum within the park is dedicated to the art and history of the Cherokee, Creek, Chickasaw, Choctaw, and Seminole Tribes. It is housed in an 1875 Indian Agency building.

  • This park was very clean and had lovely scenery. There was even multiple ponds and a nice looking play place. Wish the grill wasn't locked, but we brought our own girl just incase.
  • A beautiful park! They also hold events like the car show we recently went to. They played old timime music to go with some of the cars. Gifts, fun, and handouts. Its also a nice break if you have a Vetern in the hospital. You can take a break from there and enjoy a nice walk where there's a beautiful fountain and a clear pond. Go see it for yourself, you wont be disappointed!
