Changes Coming For Two Tulsa Parks

Jun 16, 2021

Two local parks are seeing changes.

Centennial Park at 6th and Peoria will be renamed Veterans Park, and what was Veterans Park will be called Dream Keeper Park to honor Native Americans.

During a meeting of the Indian Affairs Commission Tuesday evening, chair Cheryl Cohenour said the location on South Boulder Drive has meaning.

“It’s pretty close to the Council Oak Tree and the river, so it has a little bit more symbolic reference for us. We have an opportunity to do a lot of different things at that park,” said Cohenour.

A formal announcement with Mayor G.T. Bynum, Muscogee Nation Principal Chief David Hill and other officials will take place tomorrow at Centennial Park at 11 a.m.
