About Gathering Place: A Park for All
Gathering Place is a world-class, 66.5-acre Park that will ultimately transform nearly 100 acres of Tulsa’s iconic waterfront along the Arkansas River into a dynamic, interactive environment. Created by the George Kaiser Family Foundation (GKFF), Gathering Place is a natural space where members of Tulsa’s diverse communities can come together to explore, learn, and play.
GKFF and numerous corporate and community philanthropists gave ownership of the $465 million Park to River Parks Authority, which signed a long-term operational and management lease back to an entity of the foundation to ensure the highest quality operation, maintenance, and programming for the life of the Park in a public-private partnership.
Gathering Place is part of GGP Parks, LLC. Visit www.gatheringplace.org for more information.
