Park Friends, Inc. was created in 1976 with a vision to expand area parks and recreation opportunities beyond the traditional support base of public funding. We are a not-for-profit charitable organization, benefiting parks operated by Tulsa County and the City of Tulsa.

The mission of Park Friends, Inc. is to promote interest in the development of Tulsa’s park system and encourage monetary or non-monetary gifts to the parks. We work closely with all park administrators by raising funds and making grants to fund activities that will preserve the natural beauty and historical significance of the entire Tulsa Parks System. We go beyond budgets by providing support to priority projects and activities, which ensure that each park is inspiring and beautiful for everyone.
