Park Construction and Trail Closures
- East Bank – Casino Construction Is Complete!
A major construction project at the Creek Nation Casino has been completed and trail users are highly encouraged to use the new trail that goes behind the casino (closest to the river). Signage about the new path has been placed and we hope you will enjoy it! A huge thank you to River Spirit Casino for making this new path so beautiful and a joy!
- East Bank – 31st & Riverside Area
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 Tulsa’s 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 late 2017. 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. Tulsa’s Gathering Place will be a public park like no other, offering enhancements and connections to our river for everyone in Tulsa to enjoy.
