Neighbors Hope New Trampoline Park Will Revitalize Tulsa Business District

Posted: Updated:
TULSA, Oklahoma -

A new trampoline park is in the works at 51st and Harvard, an area where vacant buildings are growing.

Neighbors and nearby businesses hope the park sparks revitalization.

“Oh my God, it was busy, busy. We did lots of oil people were around here,” said Laverne Harmer with Country Club Barber Shop.

Harmer has been cutting hair in the area for 45 years. She said, lately, the intersection has more empty buildings than ever before.

"When Reasor’s moved, it really kinda slowed people down around here," she said.

Neighbor Mandy Winton said, "K-Mart left and Hobby Lobby moved around the corner, and then that space became empty, and now this store has been empty."

But now, Urban Air Adventure Park is taking up one of the empty spaces. The trampoline park's website says they're opening where Reasor’s was located.

Winton is excited, saying she's tired of seeing all the vacancies.

"I am so thankful that somebody is going in here so we don't have another abandoned strip center in Tulsa," she said.

Harmer hopes the park will bring more customers for other businesses, including her workplace.

"We really need something to go around in front there that really brings the business back," she said.

The park's website says it will open sometime this year.
