Washington Irving Memorial Park & Arboretum
Washington Irving Memorial Park & Arboretum pairs historic memorials with gorgeous landscaping. At this Bixby park, tour through 32.5 acres of eye-catching trees before strolling through the Laci Dawn Hill Butterfly Garden. Appreciate the vibrant colors of the flowering plants mixed with the butterflies taking flight in the area. As you continue your walk, be sure to pause for a moment of silence as you come across the Murrah Building Bombing memorial.
This public park also features a special memorial to the victims of the World Trade Center attack. Within the park's grounds, you will find a rusty steel piece of the World Trade Center Twin Towers. The park's namesake, Washington Irving, also makes an appearance on the arboretum's grounds. A statue of Washington Irving sits along the wooded walking trail. As you wander past the amphitheater that doubles as a replica of his home, Sunnyside, climb up the stage steps to see a bronze cast of Irving relaxing in a comfortable chair.
