Tulsa Parks is asking city residents to attend one of four public meetings being held Monday to assess the city's park system.
The meetings will be the public's first chance to take part in the city's effort to have its park system accredited by the Commission for Accreditation of Park and Recreation Agencies.
Should that happen, Tulsa Parks would be the first municipal park system in Oklahoma to be CAPRA accredited.
Those attending the meetings will be given time to say what they like about the park system and what they think is lacking.
The information gathered at the meetings will be used to create a needs assessment questionnaire that will be sent to 1,000 Tulsans.
The questionnaire will then be used to determine what types of facilities and amenities the community would like to see the park system include.
The meetings will take place from 6 p.m. to 7:30 p.m. at the following locations:
- Booker T. Washington High School, 1514 E. Zion St.
- Hale Junior High School, 2177 S. 67th East Ave.
- Peggy Helmerich Library, 5131 E. 91st St.
- Silo Center/Cedar Rock Inn, 4501 W. 41st St.
