Haikey Creek Park
The park is named after C. Ben Haikey, who was a preacher and a tribal member of the Union Band of Opotheleyahola Creek, known today as the Muscogee Nation. He began preaching the gospel in 1901 under a brush arbor on his allotment, in what now is Haikey Creek Park. The county acquired the 170.26-acre property from 1970-1985. Haikey Creek Park is the only park in Tulsa county where you can stand in two places at one time - Bixby, OK to the west, and Broken Arrow, OK to the east.
