Tracy Park is known for its superb tennis facilities with eight illuminated courts.
One of downtown Tulsa’s most celebrated Art Deco buildings is the Boston Avenue Methodist Church on South Boston Avenue near Boulder Park. The dominant feature of the structure is its 258-foot tower, which has an entrance that leads into a 1,800-seat auditorium. Boston Avenue Methodist Church was designated a National Landmark in 1999.

Brady Theater is an Art Deco-style structure built in 1914 that has hosted musical stars such as Willie Nelson and Kenny G. The historic Cain’s Ballroom is a legendary ballroom and concert hall, where the western swing music genre originated with Bob Wills and the Texas Playboys in the 1930s. Today, Cain’s Ballroom hosts acts like Snoop Dogg and the Blues Traveler.
