Children’s Discovery Garden

The Children’s Discovery Garden encompasses almost two acres in a fantastical “wonderland” garden environment offering experience-based learning opportunities for children and families. Look for the two ornamental blue metal banners which mark its entrance/exit.

A.R. and Marylouise Tandy Floral Terraces

Over 3 acres in size, the A.R. and Marylouise Tandy Floral Terraces displays over 8,000 permanent plants including trees, shrubs, ornamental grasses, roses and perennials set in terraced beds on a hillside which offers a glimpse of downtown Tulsa from its peak. 

Cross Timbers Nature Trail

Just west of the top of the A.R. and Marylouise Tandy Floral Terraces, the Persimmon Grove is a gateway into the Garden’s 110 acres of natural beauty. Visitors can explore the native flora and fauna found in the unique Cross Timbers ecoregion – where the tallgrass prairies from the west meet the eastern deciduous forests. The convergence of these two habitats offers an abundance of life and diversity. Each season offers something different: wildflowers, migrating birds, butterflies, changing leaves and majestic grasses.

Lakeside Promenade

The Lakeside Promenade encircles the Garden’s seven-acre lake and is comprised of a succession of planting beds including some of the oldest plantings at the Garden.

The Sarah G. Allison Lake Trail is the main pathway guests use to visit the Tandy Floral Terraces and the Lakeside Promenade. This half-mile loop meanders past an ever-changing palette of color, texture, pattern and fragrance with panoramic views across the lake.

Bumgarner Lotus Pool

The Bumgarner Family Foundation Lotus Pool opened July 21, 2023.

The Bumgarner Family Foundation Lotus Pool provides an exceptional experience in the Garden overlooking the northeastern circular portion of the lake closest to the visitor center.

Stanford Family Liberty Garden

The Stanford Family Liberty Garden opened July 21, 2023.

The Stanford Family Liberty Garden is a ceremonial civic space embedded within an elegant garden setting in the center of Tulsa Botanic Garden. It is a place to celebrate and share the qualities and concepts unifying individuals into the diverse citizenry of the United States through interpreting patriotism as a forward thinking and living concept.
