Future Improvements

Thanks to private and public donations, River Parks is moving forward on several key improvement projects.

The renovation of the east and west bank River Parks trails between 11th and 71st Streets is continuing. In 2012, the one incomplete section of east bank trail, from I-44 to 58th, was renovated in conjunction with an upcoming City of Tulsa sanitation project, as well as the widening of I-44, an Oklahoma Department of Transportation project. With the I-44 project, River Parks actually gained some land when a portion of Riverside Drive was realigned.

Planning has also begun for a major renovation of the River West Festival Park at 2100 South Jackson.
