East Bank – 31st & Riverside Area – Gathering Place Info

Many thanks to our thousands of park users who understand “no pain, no gain” as a portion of the park and trail is closed for an extended period.  Work is underway to transform the 31st and Riverside area into the amazing, world-class Gathering Place!  The park and trail from 27th to 35th Streets, including the east end of the Pedestrian Bridge, must remain closed until the project’s expected completion in 2018.  Riverside Drive closed in July 2015, with multiple detour routes to ease the inconvenience as much as possible.  Extensive trenching, earth moving, road work and infrastructure relocation and replacement is taking place, including the creation of two huge land bridges that will span a realigned Riverside Drive.  The safety of our park users and the construction workers is of utmost importance to help assure an accident-free project.  The many agencies and organizations involved in this project will accelerate the pace of activity to the extent possible, while balancing the need for nearby residential areas to have quiet hours.  We are grateful for your patience and understanding.  Gathering Place will be a public park like no other, offering enhancements and connections to our river for everyone in Tulsa to enjoy.  Follow this link for additional information about Gathering Place. http://agatheringplacefortulsa.com/
