More than 20 years ago, a study group recommended consolidating Tulsa city and county parks, but nothing came of it. Now a new task force will take on the same task. It will be led by Don Walker, who sees some positive possibilities. He believes some money, not a lot, can be saved, but there would be efficiencies and other benefits to the public from a combined park system.

Walker points to other successful collaborations between the city and county including the Health Department and the Library.
