Water. Once, it was oil; now H2O is said to be king in Oklahoma. Last summer, streams and rivers in the state ran dry as we gasped through drought. Now that our waters lap at their normal levels, the flush of supply invites some celebration.

Use this list of Oklahoma pools, splash pads, lakes, and swimming holes as a dowser, a guide to the best water in the state. You’ll discover pools with deep ends that beg for a cannonball and underwater somersaults; splash pads for sunning your shoulders and modeling your new flip-flops; and swimming holes and lagoons perfect for a game of mermaids with the kids, while wet sand massages the bottoms of your feet.

    WARNING! Any one planning to take their little ones to Owen Park. They have a bathroom next to the play ground but your littl ones won’t be allowed to use the facility. I took my 5 year old GRANDDAUGHTER to Owen Park to watch the ducks and play at the play ground. She needed to relieve herself, but they told me in the building she couldn’t use their facility, to go to a McDonald’s about a mile to the West. I’ve worked in Tulsa and paid taxes since 1962. The place where the bath room is located was provided by our Vision 2026 tax program. Why are the citizens of this city of Tulsa paying taxes if we aren’t allowed to use the restrooms. It’s a shame when they deny a child the use of their plumbing facility.
