We live less that two blocks from Woodward Park! How lucky are we? I'll tell you!
Woodward Park is 45 acres....Boasting a wide variety of horticulture delights! Including...rock gardens, an English herb garden, a terraced Italian Renaissance rose garden (over 9,000 rose bushes), a Victorian conservatory (Lord & Burnham), a three acre arboretum and an azalea garden featuring over 15,000 azaleas! Ponds, quaint little bridges arching over the babbling brooks, picnic tables and benches strategically placed to make you feel serene with nature! The now famous Linnaeus teaching garden is new and absolutely gorgeous...with waterfalls...it features plants that are native to these parts and easily adapted into your own back yard! An old mansion that is now the headquarters of the Tulsa Garden Society....also the cutest little gift store! The Tulsa Historical Society (another old mansion that was recently renovated) is also attached to Woodward Park with fascinating exhibits and stunning artwork! That's how lucky we are!
If you live in Tulsa or just passing through on old Route 66.....stop and spend a bit of time in a very tranquil place! Woodward Park! Oh, and don't forget to look us up!
