Parks and Recreation Master Plan | Tulsa, OK


The Tulsa Parks and Recreation Master Plan is intended to help meet the needs of current and future residents by positioning Tulsa to sustain and improve the community’s vast and unique parks and recreation assets. The citizen-driven plan establishes a clear direction to guide city staff, advisory committees, and elected officials in their efforts to enhance the community’s parks and recreation services and facilities.

This project, which has taken place from February to November 2009, has been guided by a project team made up of city staff, the Park and Recreation Board, representatives from the Mayor’s office, and Land Legacy. This team provided input to the GreenPlay consulting team throughout the planning process. This collaborative effort creates a plan that fully utilizes the consultant’s expertise and incorporates the local knowledge and institutional history that only community members can provide.

The project consisted of the following tasks:

  • Needs Assessment and Public Involvement
  • Inventory
  • Level of Service Analysis
  • Facility and Services Assessment and Analysis
  • Financial Analysis
  • Recommendations: Goals, Objectives, and Action Plan
