TULSA — A scaled model showing the features included in Tulsa's newest park along the Arkansas River is going on public display.
The model of the 50-acre park, called "A Gathering Place for Tulsa," will be on display downtown at the Arts & Humanities Council through Sept. 27.
Funding for the project was led by the George Kaiser Family Foundation, which committed $50 million with the purchase of 55 acres of land near to River Parks and a midtown pedestrian bridge.
Kaiser is a lifelong Tulsan and one of the wealthiest people in the U.S. He's chairman of BOK Financial Corp. and a major shareholder in various energy and technology companies.
During several public and neighborhood meetings, more than 1,300 comments were recorded and used by architects planning the park.
