October PMI Tulsa Lunch & Learn - Tony Moore
PMI Tulsa is honored to host Tony Moore, Executive Director of the Gathering Place, Tulsa's award-winning park.
The park cost $465 million to build and represents largest private gift to a public park in U.S. history. The Gathering Place will sprawl across 100 acres when complete including 13 miles of sidewalk. It boasts multiple play areas or "realms" and is suited for people of all ages. The attention to detail in the park is remarkable with the stone work, landscaping and lumber carefully sourced to reflect Oklahoma's natural terrain. With more than 6,000 trees, a boating pond, a splash area, an outdoor entertainment area, a beautiful Lodge, and several restaurants, the Gathering Place has become a jewel in Tulsa's crown. In its first year, Tulsa’s Riverfront Park achieves fanfare and recognition, including USA Today’s Best New Attraction, TIME Magazine’s World’s Greatest Places, Urban Land Institute’s Global Excellence Award, American Planning Association’s Great Places and one of National Geographic’s 12 Mind-Bending Playgrounds Around the World.
Join us as we learn about the stakeholder, scope and risk management challenges and opportunities that were embraced to produce this world-class park. Learn about the ongoing work in Phase 2 and 3 that will complete the vision for Tulsa's premier public park.
