Tulsa Garden Center

Tulsa Garden Center, located in historic Woodward Park, is a nonprofit organization whose mission is to provide a variety of horticultural and environmental education opportunities for the community and to serve as horticultural headquarters for the Tulsa area. A primary goal is to promote learning about plants through educational and recreational programs, while preserving the heritage of its historic building. Tulsa Garden Center fulfills its role as part of a larger botanical community by advocating responsible stewardship of plants and their habitats and frequently sponsors lectures, classes, shows and special events. Nearly 30 affiliated organizations call Tulsa Garden Center home for horticultural and environmental activities.

The Center is open to the public with no admission cost on Tuesday through Saturday 9:00am – 4pm. Visitors enjoy the collection of photographs displayed throughout the facility which depict the home as it was during the Travis, Hull, and Snedden days. Many of the rooms still retain the craftsmanship and charm of the original home. The extensive woodcarvings, the flamboyant gold leaf ceilings and the dramatic marble floors are just a few of the original or near original elements preserved.
