Something for everyone (and your dog!)
The City of Bartlesville is proud of its public parks and recreation facilities, which include 17 parks and open space areas totaling more than 860 developed acres, including two public swimming pools, one splashpad, an 18-hole municipal golf course, an 18-hole disc golf course, an 18-hole miniature golf course, an arboretum, 16 miles of recreation trails, a 2.5 acre off-leash dog park, a newly renovated soccer complex, two fishing lakes and a one-of-a-kind iconic Play Tower designed by famed architect Bruce Goff.
Our parks include something for everyone and your dog, 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
- Partnerships that enhance recreational opportunities and maximize resources
We invite you to visit our parks and enjoy the quality of life they offer. The benefits are endless.
