Red River Botanical Gardens

The history of Oklahoma has been influenced by the various plants, wildlife and geology found across the state. The Red River Botanical Heritage Gardens interpret some of the trees, bushes, flowers and grasses that are found along the Red River and in other areas of the state. The Park also begins to explore some of the geologic features such as the Winding Stair Mountains, Arbuckle Mountains and Wichita Mountains that strongly influence the people and history of the Southern Plains.

The Red River Botanical Heritage Park is made possible through the generous sponsorship of the following donors: Oklahoma Department of Transportation, The Meinders Foundation, Oklahoma City Federation of Women's Clubs & The Colonial Dames
