  • The BOK center is just another example of the architectural beauty of Tulsa. This area has won numerous awards and is host to multiple concerts, hockey and basketball games, and other events throughout the year. If you are attending an event at this event, be sure to arrive early and bring cash for parking. There is a large garage nearby that usually has a number of spaces. Cost is around $10. Tulsa PD does a great job managing traffic during events, and the security staff is quick and friendly as well.
  • They do a very good job with crowd control and the staff are always pleasant. I have always been impressed by the cleanliness of the facility even during events, the staff stay on top of keeping the restroom facilities clean and stocked with necessities, which is not an easy task.
