The City of Tulsa is announcing new plans regarding the Zink Lake recreational attraction along the Arkansas River next to Gathering Place.

This area has been under development for years, with the city even tearing down the old pedestrian bridge as part of the project. The work being done is to build a two and a half mile recreational area.

The City of Tulsa is now announcing it will be open to the public Labor Day weekend this year.

Zink Lake is a $48 million project that was approved by voters in Tulsa.

The area will feature activities like kayaks, canoes, paddle boards, pedal boats, and a 1,000 foot whitewater area on the east bank of the river.

The city said it expects rentals to be available at the same time as the Zink Lake opening during Labor Day weekend.

Concessions will also be available, along with boat ramps where people can bring their own non-motorized watercraft, like kayaks and canoes if they have them.

Swimming will not be allowed, but there will be walkways for people who want to get close to the water.

The city understands people might have a lot of questions about this. So it is holding a public meeting in February, where the public can learn more about the initial plans.

That meeting is at the Gathering Place Boathouse on Tuesday, February 27 at 5:30 p.m. CLICK HERE to learn more.
