Tulsa has a humid subtropical climate and can get fairly hot in the summer months. The biggest precaution to take in the area is regarding tornado season. Keep an eye on the forecast and take your walks when the weather is nice and sunny.
This area is very artificial as well. Although there are a couple of patches of green surrounding parks and schools, it is a very rare find and even from these locations, you can see the miles of buildings all around. This makes the area great for city lovers, but not the best for those looking for hiking opportunities. However, the artificial environment provides great entertainment options and a guarantee that there will be somewhere to go for anything from a coffee break to a serious emergency.
Another great park in the area is LaFortune Park. This large city park features sports fields and courts, play equipment, playgrounds, a pool, and golf. A more unique location in the area is the Southern Hills Country Club. Whether you become a member or simply walk around the course, this area is beautiful and worth seeing.
The place to go for dog parks in the area would be Hunter Park. This park also features a pond and trails for walking and biking. A final great location is Jackson Park. This 14-acre open space features a splash pad, fishing pond, playground, and mile long trail.
