Tulsa County Parks Hit

Tulsa, OK – Severe weather caused damage to several Tulsa County Parks. Most damage was a result of high winds and tree breakage, many of which were minimal.

LaFortune Park sustained the most damage with high levels of tree breakage and scattered debris. The LaFortune Park Golf Course will be closed for at least one day. The picnic area will be closed for at least two days as hanging tree limbs create a safety hazard for the public.

Southlakes Golf Course will be closed for the remainder of today while crews clean up limbs and debris on the course, but the course will likely reopen tomorrow.

The public is urged to be safe in dealing with storm damage. "We ask that our park patrons be patient while damage is assessed and handled. Our crews will handle the cleanup in a quick and efficient manner," said Tulsa County Spokesman Michael Willis.
