TULSA - Guthrie Green park in Tulsa's Brady Art District is being unveiled Friday, September 7.
The new park will have an outdoor theater, fountains and a cafe. The George Kaiser Family Foundation is dedicating the park to Tulsa's performing arts. Stanton Doyle with the foundation hopes it will also help bring people to the downtown area. "It’s a great opportunity to celebrate downtown Tulsa," he said. "Hopefully they’ll see opportunities for more activities downtown."
The park is dedicated to Oklahoma's son Woody Guthrie on this his 100 th Birthday. The theme of the park is energy and it's highlighted in the fountains, irrigation system and even an underground geothermal well field. The system will help cool and heat the soon to be built museum and performing arts center across the street.
In addition to the many amenities at the park, organizers will put on several events this Friday, Saturday and Sunday to welcome visitors to the new attraction.
