The City of Tulsa is looking for citizen input on a major facelift at McCullough Park, 11534 E. 25th St. Citizens are invited to drop in to a “Party at the Park” idea session at Disney Elementary School, 11702 E 25th St., between noon-3 p.m. on Saturday, Dec. 7.
Tulsa Park and Recreation Director Anna America said the City wants to get community input on which new park features are most important and how neighbors want the park to look and function. The Vision Tulsa initiative, approved by voters in 2016, earmarked $3.5 million to renovate the 11-acre park in east Tulsa. Plans call for a bike park, splashpad, multi-purpose sports court, picnic shelter, additional walking trails and playground equipment.
Visitors will be welcome to come and go, enjoy some snacks, and leave comments about what they want to see in the new park. Parents are encouraged to bring children to participate.
“In the end, whatever we build is all about the kids, so they are an important voice in the process,” America said.
Those who cannot attend the party may see some of the proposed park improvement ideas by visiting the design website at http://www.lpci.com/. At the bottom of the web page is a survey where site visitors can give their ideas for McCullough Park.
