As Tulsa Eagerly Awaits the Opening of the Gathering Place, a Chat with Director Tony Moore

Aug 31, 2018

Our guest is Tony Moore, Director of the Gathering Place, the greatly anticipated and privately funded public park that will open alongside the Arkansas River here in Tulsa on Saturday, September 8th. Moore brings us up to speed on what this massive and very special space -- the ground for which was broken back in 2014 -- will have to offer all of the people of Greater Tulsa. Per the Gathering Place website: "The next chapter is filled with excitement as we welcome our first guests.... The children, families, and friends of Tulsa will write the narrative from there, an ongoing adventure sure to inspire wonderful moments for generations to come.... We are Tulsa. We are diverse, passionate, and true to our beliefs. We remain consistent in our mission, as a project led by George Kaiser Family Foundation, that we all become united in our love for our community. Relatives, close friends, neighbors, we are all family. We are united from every zip code, from the city to the suburbs, from the river to the hills, from the north to the south, from the west to the east."
