Tulsa, OK


View on Map


Owen Park is less than five minutes away from downtown, just northwest of the city’s center. Tulsa’s first park still has the pond that formed when a stock of nitroglycerine belonging to the Western Torpedo Company accidentally detonated in 1904. The blast left a huge crater in the ground that was later filled with water and used as a swimming hole (though no one swims in it now except for the ducks and geese that frequent the neighborhood). The park also has a splash pad, playground and plenty of picnic tables and shade trees.
