The Gathering Place is a child’s dream playground. It definitely makes Tulsa, Oklahoma a destination spot. Cristina, a friend of mine from high-school, lives outside of Tulsa and she posted they went here. I was able to talk to her about it before we went and she kept telling me how big it was. I didn’t appreciate how big it was until I got there. Tulsa was on the way for us when we moved from Missouri to Arizona.
Initially we were only planning on spending an hour at the playground before dinner on the way to the hotel. However, once we arrived we realized it truly is a dream playground and spent way more than an hour. There is just so much to do. Even after a few hours we felt like we had more to do so we spent the next morning at the playground as well. We left only because we needed to continue our move out west.
I told my sister and brother in law who were living in Kansas at the time that they HAD to make a weekend trip and plan for at least a whole day at the gathering place. My brother in law is a landscape architecture and apparently the design of the Gathering Place was on his radar. Even though it’s a playground it’s beautifully done so adults and children love it. There are tons of walking paths and so many things to look at.
