TULSA, Okla. — Tulsa’s Gathering Place adds another accolade to the collection.

The park won the USA Today’s 10Best Readers’ Choice 2021 Best City Park award. Gathering Place triumphed over nineteen other national contenders from metropolitan cities across the country.

It is so gratifying to see a Tulsa attraction voted as the top city park in the nation.”

Gathering Place won eight national and international awards over the last two years. For a full list of the Park’s awards, visit [] park.
