Commercial | CROSSLAND CONSTRUCTION - A GATHERING PLACE FOR TULSA

Place will also have five sport courts where
people can reserve them and play tennis,
soccer, volleyball and basketball," he says.
Overall, Stava notes the foundation is
working very hard to provide programming and outdoor opportunities for all
Tulsans. "There could be yoga programs for
young adults to seniors, such as bridge club
competitions, and various outdoor activities like tug-o-war and relay races," he says
excitedly. "We want the park to ultimately
promote an active outdoor lifestyle, as well
as a community that all Tulsans can come
and be together in."
Phase two of the project will consist of
the construction of a seven-acre children's
museum on the far south side of the park.
"We are in the design phase for the building
currently," Lopp says. "This will take six to
eight months and construction will possibly
start in early 2018."

Natural Habitat
Crossland Construction is manufacturing
various sizes of sandstone onsite. The material will be featured throughout the park, in
applications ranging from flagstone paving
to the buildings and bridges.

"There are several thousand tons of this
stone being made, so it's being included in
all of the buildings and the numerous site
walls throughout the park," Lopp says. "It
will have exposed concrete, which means
people will see gravel and rock within the

'This is the
single largest
gift to a municipality of
green space in
[U.S. history.]'
concrete. Along with that we also have a
natural stone curve, or cobble, along the
edge of all the pathways. In addition, the
lodge will also have a three-story, stone-clad
fireplace within it."
Stava says the project team is working
hard to not only include natural elements
in the park, but to preserve its natural

elements as well, including a cottonwood
tree, which is the oldest on the site. "We
named it the Reading Tree," Stava explains.
"We will have partnerships with local
nonprofits and our city library to oversee
that program. Kids will be able to listen to
or read stories, and borrow books. There
will be various programs to promote reading, especially to the youngest children of
reading age to help improve their reading
scores in our community."

Team Effort
The architects participating in the project,
including Michael Van Valkenburgh and his
team, bring unique design perspectives to
the table, Lopp says.
"They are from New York, so they have
offered different types of methods they have
seen to the project that we have never seen
here in Oklahoma," he explains.
"Overall, it's a team effort because all
parties are involved," Lopp concludes. "This
is going to be a once-in-a-lifetime-type
project to build something that will be here
forever. Thousands of people will visit each
year, so to say you were a part of this will be
something special."

The project team is working to include
natural elements in the park and preserve the existing nature, as well.
