Another big project in the works is going on in the Osage Hills, northwest of Tulsa. The groundbreaking for the Oklahoma Centennial Botanical Garden was held Wednesday. The centennial phase will add an entrance road, a lake with an island, a temporary visitors’ center, and a parking lot.

"There'll be a place where you can come out for informal classes, a place if you just want to get away from it all and sit and contemplate the beauty of the nature,” said Pat Woodrum with the garden.

"This will be yet another destination point in our community to help Tulsa and the northeast region truly become the point, the tourism point for this region and this nation,” said Tulsa Mayor Kathy Taylor.

The project is part of a larger $40 million project that will offer native plant gardens, a chapel and an amphitheater with seating for 3,000.
