About Tulsa Botanic Garden
A short drive down the L.L. Tisdale parkway from downtown, you will find a little piece of nature tucked away in the Tulsa Botanic Garden. With their mission to create a more sustainable and harmonious world, the garden offers a space for all Tulsans to appreciate the beauty and importance of plants.
Resting on a beautiful lake, the garden showcases a variety of plants native to Oklahoma and areas with similar climates. In the Children’s Discovery Garden, you’ll find playful sculptures, waterfalls and green growing all around.
The A.R. and Marylouise Tandy Floral Terraces overlook the entire garden. The terraces feature blooming perennials, roses and shrubs and the garden cascade, a water runnel that flows through the terrace and into the lake.
Just west of the terraces in Persimmon Grove, you’ll find the cross timbers trail. Visitors can trek through the native flora and fauna of the open prairie. These trails are just the beginning of Tulsa Botanic’s 25-year expansion plan. The master plan includes 110 acres of sprawling gardens and lakeside views that will emphasize Oklahoma’s natural beauty.
In the summer, visit the garden for morning yoga or children’s story time. In the fall and winter, come make scarecrows and take in the holiday lights along the lake. In every season, the garden offers Tulsans an opportunity to escape the city, settle into nature and appreciate the natural beauty around us.
