TULSA, OK (KJRH) — Residents and Tulsa's River Parks Authority took the next step in deciding the future of Tulsa's Turkey Mountain.

Dozens of residents attended a public forum to talk with park leaders about access to the park and circulation throughout it.
The River Parks Authority held a meeting was back in March when 300 people turned out to begin crafting a master plan for Turkey Mountain.

The meeting on April 17 was all about access and circulation throughout the park. One of the major issues residents brought up was a lack of parking. River Parks Authority also heard requests to add an extra entrance in the northeast part of the park.

"It's important to say there's no pre-conceived plan," said River Parks Authority Director Matt Meyer. "We are looking for input from the public, our stakeholders, and people who use turkey mountain all the time."

The conversation also covered thoroughly marking the trails, which was also brought up as an issue last month. For those who couldn't make it out, the next meeting will be in May.
