Historic White City in midtown Tulsa
White City in midtown Tulsa was originally a dairy farm built by Pennsylvania native, Glenn Braden and it was so named because of the color of the buildings and silos built there. After Braden’s death, his children closed the dairy, platted the land and began selling lots.
Targeted at Tulsa’s middle class, the White City addition offered modern suburban acreage. A focus of the neighborhood is Braden Park, which has been there since the origin of the division. Covering almost ten acres, Braden Park’s main feature is a large pond with a cement walk, fountain in the center, three fountains and ducks. Fishing is permitted. There is a large water playground and swings – much for the kids to do. Included are tennis courts, a shelter, picnic tables and restrooms.
