City parks include something for everyone, from picnic areas to sports fields. Little ones especially love a special amusement park — known as the Kiddie Park — the oldest non-profit children’s amusement park in America.
We continue to grow and change, and are committed to provide for all Bartlesville citizens, visitors, and patrons:
- Quality, diverse recreation and leisure opportunities
- Safe, clean and attractive parks and recreation facilities
- Investments in new and renovated parks and recreation facilities

Centennial Tree Guide
The purpose of the Centennial Tree Guide is to commemorate the State of Oklahoma’s 100th birthday as it relates to trees. The guide contains many trees located in the Bartlesville community that have lived as long as Oklahoma has been a state. It is important to document the history of these trees. In addition, we hope that this book inspires citizens to plant and take care of trees.
