Last minute preparations are complete. The Gathering Place opens. It is a $465-million project that has been  in the works for years.

Park Director Tony Moore says it’s unique in that much of the expense is borne by the private sector, about $400-million. The rest comes from the city of Tulsa in infrastructure and related items.

The new riverside park opens at 10am. A parade  at 8:30  preceded the official opening ceremonies.

Shuttles are running every 15 minutes from OSU-Tulsa, Expo Square and the River Spirit Casino.

50,000 people are expected at the park on its first day.
