Members of Collinsville's
Chamber of Commerce learned details of the Oklahoma Centennial Botanical Garden
at Thursday's meeting. The first phase of the garden is planned for completion
by Oklahoma's Centennial in Nov. 2007. The site is about 7 miles northwest
of downtown Tulsa at near the Post Oak Lodge (and adjacent to the proposed
large Indian Statue Monument). The gardens will serve educational and research
goals in addition to the beauty and plant collections. A planned extension
of the Gilcrease Expressway will provide improved access to the site in coming
years. The project was started with the Vision 2025 funds. Educational partners
are OSU, TCC and Tulsa Technology Center. The project will continue to seek
public and private funding.
