The park, located across from ONEOK Field in downtown Tulsa, was built in memory of the 1921 Tulsa Race Riot and honors the life and legacy of civil rights leader, Dr. John Hope Franklin.

Art pieces in the park tell the story of African Americans' role in building Oklahoma.

"Completing this park has been a long journey," said Julius Pegues, Board Chairman of the John Hope Franklin Center. "Our hope is that people of all ages come here to reflect, to learn, and to cast their eyes to a more hopeful future."

During the winter, the park will be open Thursdays through Sundays from 12 p.m. to 5 p.m.  Admission is free.
