The Expo Square center directly north of the residential neighborhood, across East 21st Street, provides year round public use of multiple facilities and services to the residents of Tulsa County. Art festivals, horse training, and flea markets are only a few of the events that can be found there. The Tulsa County Fair began in 1903 and the fairgrounds were moved in 1923 to their current location with a land donation from M.E. Crosbie.
The Pavilion was constructed in 1931 and with additional land acquired the State Fair area was born. The second phase of the Expo Square development was completed in 2008 and included improved parking and replacement of barns for livestock. Until the 1980s Expo Square was home to the International Petroleum Exposition, and the Golden Driller statue, 76 feet in height, was added in 1966. The statue has become the symbol for the center.
