Nearly four years of park construction are finally over and while families can't wait to get in runners, walkers and cyclists are thrilled, too.

When the park finally opens Saturday morning, those barriers on the Arkansas River and Midland Valley Trail will be removed.

The two trail systems closed when the gathering place started construction in 2014.

Cyclists are thrilled about the Riverparks trail network being reconnected.

"It will be nice for it to be open finally and be able to do a full loop without having to deviate from the trail. It will make times a lot quicker to get your morning ride in..." said Jason Gosnell, a Tulsa cyclist.

Especially for cyclists, there is one big rule you need to know... stay on the bike paths.

You won't be able to take your bike inside the park--obviously for safety reasons.

Pet owners: you can't bring your dogs in either.
