City of Tulsa

A deal proposed in 2015 for the City of Tulsa to sell Mitchell Park to Bishop Kelley High School may be back on.

The holdup was a National Park Service grant for between $13,000 and $18,000 the city received for improvements there.

"And those small amount of funds essentially required that, that park now cannot be sold directly but can be converted into another park," said City of Tulsa Real Estate Manager Michelle Lester.
