Riverside Drive, Gathering Place To Open Spring Or Summer 2018
TULSA, Oklahoma –
Mother Nature has delayed the opening of Tulsa’s Gathering Place and Riverside Drive.
In a news release, A Gathering Place for Tulsa and the city say the coordinated opening will be in late spring/summer of 2018.
Originally both were expected to open in late 2017.
According to Project Manager Jeff Stava, Oklahoma weather was a big factor.
“The record rains of 2016 and this year have negatively impacted both the park and city’s construction schedule. Plus, you add in the unseasonably warm winters, which have impacted the planting of the park’s almost 6,000 trees, and the result is a new opening timeline,” he said.
