Gathering Place Tours Are Winding Down As Construction Continues

Posted: Updated:
TULSA, Oklahoma -

After weeks of student field trips at Tulsa’s Gathering Place, the fun is ending this week – for a little while.

The park is closing again so construction crews can finish work in time for a summer opening.

Over the last 7 weeks, 34,000 children visited.

Wednesday, children from several Tulsa elementary schools were in the Chapman Adventure Playground.

It's the 5 acres of playground already finished that was opened for kids from pre-k to third grade to preview.

It's been a big hit, but there is more work to do.

The rest of phase one remains unfinished, and that's what starts now.

Tony Moore, Gathering Place Manager, says "oh, there's a still a lot more work to be done, trees to be planted, a lot of railings, permanent railings to be installed.  We went through a lot of painstaking efforts to have kids here in the park during this window.  We really wanted them to have a first look and have the kids get excited about it."

As for the re-opening, when it's open for everyone – that date is still to be determined.

Moore says they're waiting to see how spring rains impact their work before finalizing the grand opening.
