West Tulsa

West Tulsa is another reminder of Tulsa’s oil-rich past. Two oil refineries remain in operation to this day on the west bank of the river. This large industrial area gives way to wooded and hilly neighborhoods. The classic art deco Webster High School is here, as is the popular train-themed Ollie’s Station Restaurant, sitting next to the Tulsa rail yard. Portions of Route 66 pass through west side.

Chandler Park offers a great Tulsa skyline view. WaterWorks Art Center in Newblock Park offers art classes and workshops for both adults and children. Further west you will find KeyStone Ancient Forest.

The River Parks system, along the bank of the Arkansas river, includes the Riverwest Festival Park, home to such popular events as Tulsa’s Oktoberfest, one of the largest of its kind in North America.
