It's easy to stay active outdoors here in northeastern Oklahoma.
Ready … set … go to one of the 41 parks covering 800 beautiful acres in Broken Arrow, where everyone, including fur babies, can find an activity to enjoy.
“The Broken Arrow Parks and Recreation Department takes great pride in providing parks, open spaces, trails and programs that help build and promote a healthy community,” says Matt Hendren, parks and recreation director. “The majority of the parks offer well-loved paved trails for bike and pedestrian use.”
Popular parks in Broken Arrow include:
1. Nienhuis Skate Park
The recent addition of 16,000 square feet of street- and plaza-style designed concrete added to the existing bowl and ramp skating area more than doubled the skate park’s original size to 28,000 square feet. Anyone, regardless of skill level, can have fun here.

Opened in 2021, the $7 million state-of-the-art complex features four adult-softball fields with turf infields as well as an adaptive turf field for people of all capabilities.
