Go downtown, only to be confused by one-way streets and parking? Convinced you'll be mugged if you set foot within the IDL? Maybe the whole urban grit scene just rubs you the wrong way.
Let the folks at Tulsa's Owen Park change your mind about all that.
EDIT//NOTE DATE CHANGE. Art deco lovers and the downtown ambivalent alike will gather at 9 a.m. Saturday, May 30 at New Centennial Park at 6th Street and Boston Avenue for a stroll on the downtown Tulsa streets hugged by the buildings of oil barons' dreams. The whole family is welcome; just make sure to wear shoes made for walkin', because that's just what they'll do.
Grab some coffee Saturday morning, head downtown and prepare your hearts for the inevitable: an irresistible urge to enroll in architecture school. Also, love - sweet love.
To be sure you don't get left behind, call 596.1485 to register for the walk. Or, register on the page for this event on Facebook. And don't pay the meters - downtown parking is free on weekends.
