Owasso’s Department of Recreation and Culture understands that parks are a vital part of the health of our city. They have developed and maintain twelve public parks in our city.
Beyond making you a happier and healthier person, parks can actually improve the health of entire cities themselves. A report compiled by The Trust for Public Land, a nonprofit dedicated to creating parks and protecting public lands, shows that parks, greenways, and trails enable and encourage people to exercise, that exposure to nature improves psychological and social health and that parks help build healthy, stable communities—they can become the gathering spaces that create stronger social connections and make people better neighbors. According to another like-minded nonprofit, Urban Releaf, even the trees alone have tremendous benefits. They say trees help with cooling the air (by providing shade and transpiring), purifying the air by removing particulates (they essentially act as giant filters), and improving water quality and flow (by reducing runoff and hazardous pollutants). Owasso offers a large variety of parks to choose from including a skatepark, dog park, waterpark and more.
