Play at the Gathering Place
If you’ve spent a while in Tulsa, you’ve probably heard folks rave about Gathering Place, and for a good reason! This riverfront park has tons of interactive attractions that will easily banish idle minds and idle hands. Kids will love exploring the playgrounds, and frankly so will adults! There are also places to dine at the park, making it easy to spend an entire day at this popular Tulsa attraction.
Visit the Tulsa Zoo
Most kids love a good zoo, so if you haven’t taken a trip with yours to the Tulsa Zoo, this summer could be a great time to visit! We highly recommend going in the morning to avoid crowds and get the best chance of seeing the animals at their most active before they retreat under shade to hide from the summer sun! Plan out your visit so you can see you and your kids’ favorite animals before noon, then stop by the petting zoo for some hands-on visiting with small farm animals.
Picnic at Woodward Park
An afternoon at a park is a great way to spend some family time, and Woodward Park is the perfect place to do that. Spanning 44 acres and including an arboretum, a rose garden, and tons of scenic paths, there’s a lot to see at this park, and plenty of grassy space to enjoy a picnic in the shade.
Learn at the Discovery Lab
Discovery Lab is Tulsa’s children’s museum, and in addition to having several excellent summer camps for kids, it also makes a great midday visit for parents with kids eager to learn and play. There’s something at the Discovery Lab to suit children of just about any age, but it is especially well-suited for kids 4-12.
Visit a Museum
Speaking of museums, there are tons of unique art, science, and history museums in Tulsa, and many of them would be excellent visits for parents with children, especially kids in middle or high school.
