Tulsa River Park

The focal point of River Park is often considered to be the Pedestrian Bridge, located adjacent to Zink Dam near 29th and Riverside Drive. The Pedestrian Bridge was formerly a bridge for the Midland Valley Railroad and is now a pedestrian walkway connecting foot and bicycle paths on both East and West sides of the Arkansas River.

Zinc Dam, shown here, retains water North of the Pedestrian Bridge to fill the river bank to bank. Downstream it becomes the Arkansas Sandbar during the dry season.
