Current Park Updates
The east bank trail along Riverside Drive from about 25th to 38th Streets, as well as Riverside Drive from 21st to 41st Streets, is closed to allow for construction of Gathering Place. In addition, the parking lot at 31st & Riverside Drive as well as the City’s Midland Valley Trail from 26th Street to the east bank River Parks trail is also closed. There will be temporary inconveniences before the long-term benefits are realized.
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.
