Guthrie Green is an urban garden and performance space in The Brady Arts District in downtown Tulsa, Oklahoma. Accommodating visitors looking for a peaceful escape or family activities, the park features a stage, The Dock pavilion, tree-lined paths, shade structures, water features and a large lawn. In addition to the markets, festivals and concerts we have planned for Guthrie Green, we hope that visitors to the park will enjoy a simple walk or lunch at the park to experience an urban green space unlike any other in Tulsa.
