River Parks offers outdoor recreation and seasonal entertainment along the banks of the Arkansas River in Tulsa. Over 26 miles of asphalt trails on both banks are used for jogging, walking, bicycling and rollerblading. Parking, restrooms, picnic areas and playgrounds are scattered throughout the park, and striped bass and catfish are plentiful below the dam attracting anglers to the riverbanks and handicapped-accessible fishing piers.

The Pedestrian Bridge, a focal point at 29th Street, is a popular site for visitors. Zink Lake, an impoundment pool created by the dam, is used for non-motorized boating, especially rowing. These attractions make for a perfect day of fun in the sun whether you want to go kayaking or take a long walk.

A diversity of wildlife can be found in the park's habitats and the Turkey Mountain Urban Wilderness Area provides rugged terrain ideal for hiking, mountain biking, and horseback riding. There is also a disc golf course and an amphitheater on the west bank of the river. The Rivers Edge Bistro and Cafe at 19th and Riverside Drive is open year-round, weather permitting, and also features live music Thursday through Sunday evenings.

The Gathering Place opened in 2018, offering 70 acres of family-friendly fun for all ages. Guests can wander into the tunnels, hit the BMX pump tracks, wander through the Sky Garden and more. At the Gathering Place, a variety of age-specific playgrounds grant guests the chance to explore their imaginations, whether sliding down a metal crane or hopping aboard a pirate ship. Be sure to check out a seasonal event and grab a snack while visiting the Gathering Place.
