Gallery: Gathering Place playground among 'world's greatest' as named by National Geographic

Gathering Place represents the largest private gift to a public park in United States history. Donated to the River Parks Authority by the George Kaiser Family Foundation, which gave $200 million (including $50 million in land), it has received more than $150 million in pledges from corporate and community philanthropists. The city of Tulsa contributed $65 million in park infrastructure and improvements to Riverside Drive. 

In a recent travel feature from National Geographic, the Gathering Place attraction was listed alongside 11 other "mind-bending" playgrounds in Paris, Tokyo, St. Louis and New York City as the world's greatest.
