To improve the quality of life within the community, Tulsa County Parks promotes health and wellness, by providing opportunities in both natural and developed environments, where citizens and guests can enjoy recreation and leisure activities.
We maintain & operate the following parks & centers:
Bixby Community Center
Haikey Creek Park
South County Recreation Center
Urban parks enrich our lives. They educate, protect, and enrich America's young people. They provide a place to play after school and during summer vacations, and give individuals and families countless hours of recreation and relaxation. Parks produce clean air and protect cities from floodwaters. They help to increase property value, grow the local tax base, contribute to education, reduce crime, attract businesses, and create jobs.
Tulsa County has the only county operated park system in the State of Oklahoma, existing by permissive state legislation, allowing the Board of County Commissioners to manage a park system. Our Vision is to secure Tulsa as an evolved community in which to live, work, play, visit and do business. Our recreation and leisure programs for people of all ages and abilities encourage wide participation so that everyone can benefit from our parks. From organized programs at community centers to our tranquil walking trails, Tulsa County Parks provide you with many opportunities to enhance your health and wellness.
We encourage you to utilize our many programs; with five community centers open year round, we are sure you will find something to enjoy. Connecting people to the community is what we are all about. At the heart of our organization are our volunteers. They are a vital part of the Tulsa County Parks system and we rely on their time, energy, and talents to help us create a better community. Parks, recreation services and facilities are a very important part of enhancing the quality of life in our neighborhoods.
