Guthrie Green is a former industrial site and freight yard that now acts as an impressive showcase of “green” technology. This urban park features a performance space and public garden in downtown Tulsa with tree-lined paths, water features, a large lawn and plenty of shade structures. Markets, festivals and concerts are regularly scheduled at this downtown space, which also features an on-site restaurant and plenty of spots for food trucks to park. Lucky’s on the Green is a cozy but modern café serving quick concession items like fresh pretzels and tacos alongside traditional favorites like potato salad and gelato.
The park features several “green” updates not found at average parks. All lighting on site is efficient LED, and water runoff in the park is used to help irrigate the landscape and clean water before it enters the storm sewer. Solar panels also are used to contribute to the energy demands of park amenities.
