  • There is nothing else like it! I took my mom who is from out of town. We spent about 45 minutes in the lodge alone. It is spectacular. All of the natural elements, the wood, rock, expanses of glass that make you feel like you are still in the outdoors, it lifts my soul. We walked through the playgrounds and the vast variety, that also serve as art pieces, are simply awe inspiring and such a treat for the imagination of a child. We made it as far as the boat house and the quirky museum inside. We spent quite a bit of time in that small space. There is so much to look at. If you look long enough you will find another oddity or something that reminds you of your childhood. We only made it through a fraction of the park in the few hours we were there. We will have to return for more exploring.
  • A wooden playground Paradise with Magnificent bathrooms Gathering places that series a fun playground areas made out of wood and metal it’s interesting and unique for kids of all ages. From the zip line to the multi story castle you can spend hours at this place and keep even the youngest kids attention. And did I miss in the bathrooms? Right in the center there’s a huge section of family bathrooms that are clean! They are literally the cleanest public bathrooms you will ever find at a park. In fact the staff that keeps this Park immaculate was doing a great job even when the temperatures for over 100°. If you live in Tulsa or are just passing through the Gathering Place is the place for you
