Community and Specialty Centers

Due to the COVID-19 threat, Tulsa Parks has closed all of our community and specialty centers, including WaterWorks Art Center and Oxley Nature Center, as well as cancelled all public programming and rentals until further notice.  

Outdoor parks and green spaces, including the Oxley trails, are still open to the public during regular park hours, but we encourage everyone to do their part to keep themselves and others safe and healthy by maintaining good hygiene and social distances best practices. 

Staff will follow up with all customers to process refunds for cancelled programming and rentals. If you have additional questions, contact Tulsa Parks Director Anna America at
