The Liberty Parkway Trail between Elm Place and 9th Street (Lynn Lane) in Broken Arrow is now open, after crews completed repairs to the retaining wall and drainage pipe on a section of that trail. Liberty Parkway Trail is a bicycling and walking path next to the Creek Turnpike.  A section of the trail had been closed since December 2015 due to weather-related damage.


“Liberty Parkway Trail is one of the most used park assets in Broken Arrow, so we’re very excited to see it open again,” said Scott Esmond, Parks and Recreation Director. “We want to thank everyone for their patience while the repairs were being made.”


The repairs cost approximately $186,000 and will be paid for through Sales Tax Capital Improvement funds. Cherokee Pride Construction, Inc. completed the repairs, with the City’s Engineering and Construction Department managing the project.

About Liberty Parkway Trail


Liberty Parkway Trail runs for approximately 9.5 miles between New Orleans Street (101st Street) by Northeastern State University and where it meets the Mingo Trail near the Creek Turnpike and Mingo Valley Expressway. The trail follows the South Loop of the Creek Turnpike until it reaches the university, where the trail ends.

Liberty Parkway Trail passes through green space, linking the university with neighborhoods to the west and providing the perfect non-motorized way to access the city.
