New deal is for Turkey Mountain

The City of Tulsa and Tulsa River Parks have agreed to a 50-year master lease agreement that will preserve River Parks trails.

As part of the agreement, the city will donate their land on Turkey Mountain to protect the area as a place of urban wilderness. The George Kaiser Family Foundation also will donate the land they own on Turkey Mountain to River Parks. It will require Tulsa City Council and Tulsa River Parks Authority approval. Pending the approval of the agreement and deeding of land, River Parks plans to begin the process of developing the Turkey Mountain Master Plan.
