THE READING TREE CHALLENGE
We Did It!
We brought the magical Reading Tree to life! Because Tulsa County’s children read over 2 million books, the tree was adorned with fresh leaves just in time for Gathering Place’s opening. The magic now continues at the real Reading Tree with exciting adventures planned for all families.
See you at the gathering place!
Visit the real Reading Tree at Tulsa’s world-class riverfront Park, Gathering Place. The old cottonwood tree will be home base for so many adventures, whether it’s playing amongst pixies in Fairyland Forest or wrestling paddlefish in the Land of the River Giants.
Books come to life at the Reading Tree! Join us during our 100 Days of Opening Celebration for story times from guest readers.
Incorporate obedience training, tricks and dancing for a fun bonding experience between dogs and their owners with sounds, lights and DJs.
About Gathering Place
A momentous transformation turned 100 acres along Tulsa’s riverfront into Gathering Place, a world-class park for all Tulsans to enjoy. The park includes a five-acre Adventure Playground, Mist Mountain water feature, sport courts, bike and skate parks, natural
trails, a boathouse and large lawns for programming. Phase I (66.5 acres) of the Park is now open.
