Heritage Park - Sapulpa, OK
Heritage Park is a community-built park and a huge source of pride for Sapulpa citizens. The park features include; a covered picnic shelter area, indoor restrooms, and a playground for children of all ages. American Heritage Bank and Sapulpa Main Street spearheaded the development of this community-built park in 2004 with the assistance of architects Leathers and Associates of Ithaca, NY, and design assistance from Sapulpa-area elementary school children. The entire town was involved with over 14,000 volunteer hours logged over the nine-day building project.
The park referred to early on as "The Big Build", was built as a "thank you" to the citizens of Sapulpa from American Heritage Bank for their 100th Birthday. The total cost of the project was $284,125, ninety percent of which was provided by the American Heritage Bank. The remaining ten percent came from tile sales, the Tulsa Sapulpa Union Railway, and the H.U. & Eva Maud Bartlett Foundation. All funds were used for materials, design fees, and preparation of the site. The project was finally completed in December 2005.

A fun hidden gem in Sapulpa. It's cool, even for adults. It's a small area for a park, but they really use most of the space the best that they can. Plenty of stuff to play on and use your imagination to have fun. Slides, swings, nets, bridges, small rock walls, and monkey bars in a compact area with soft rubber ground covering. Fenced and feels safe.
This park is one of the best in town. It has a little town theme with a pretend drive-in theatre, a boat in the sandbox, a three-story enclosed playground, obstacles, and more. The play area for smaller tots has barnyard animals, shapes, letters, and numbers throughout the play area.
