Flush with azaleas, dogwoods and roses, Woodward Park is truly a sight to behold. This public park is particularly popular for weddings, but you can also just come here to relax. To learn about the flowers here, heed the advice of recent visitors and stop by the Tulsa Garden Center, which is located next door. Along with information about the park's flora, the center also provides educational programs on horticulture, gardening classes and workshops, as well as tai chi classes.
For a relaxing day, bring a picnic and take your time wandering through the trails. The Tulsa Garden Center is also a great place to improve your green thumb, as it houses more than 5,000 volumes on botany, landscaping and more.
Woodward Park and the Tulsa Garden Center are free to enter; the center is open Tuesday through Saturday from 9 a.m. until 4 p.m., and the park is open daily from 5 a.m. until 11 p.m. The park is located about 2 miles southwest of downtown Tulsa. Visit the center's official website for more information.
