TULSA, Okla. (AP) - Construction is beginning on the city’s newest park along the Arkansas River.

Work began this week on the first phase of “A Gathering Place for Tulsa, which is being funded by a mix of corporate and philanthropic Tulsa organizations - including the George Kaiser Family Foundation, which recently made a $350 million pledge toward the project.

The park will include features such as a lodge, boathouse, nature walks, two land bridges, sporting areas and a pond, among other amenities.

A groundbreaking ceremony was held in September on the project.
