Just saw this as well. Looks fantastic... reminds me of the Katy Trail Ice House in Dallas (or any number of outdoor beer garden/retail type places in Austin).

Funny you said this as I live next door to the Katy Trail Ice House currently, and run the trail every day after work. The Ice House is my favorite place in Dallas, and it would be awesome if Tulsa had their own version of that. I love the trail access from that spot as it really activates the place. If you haven't been down here in awhile, they have recently completed an expansion that has essentially doubled their patio space. It's gonna be a blast come college football season (And dangerous because you will never leave!) Can't wait for this to kick off in Tulsa as I am always down to hang out on a patio, and haven't found one with the same sort of vibe.

I honestly think places like the boneyard at dead armadillo, Fassler Hall, etc, just need to drop in some larger trees, string some lights,and have music playing the entire day to jack up the vibe.

Blue Rose patio overlooking the river is pretty nice.  The Vista at the Boathouse patio at Gathering Place will be great when it opens.  But I agree Tulsa needs more patios with big trees.  I love Katy Trail Ice House and The Mont in Norman for this very reason.  

I watched Patrick Fox explain his vision for the project (it was on IG stories) and he said they want to preserve the big trees along the trail but clean up all the brush that is currently there in between the trail and gravel parking lot.  

There isn't a whole lot I love about Dallas but I really like the Katy Trail, all the trees and highrises and the growing number of trail-side bars and eateries with outdoor seating.  The Midland Valley Trail is a similar asset that hasn't been fully utilized.  Now we just need to directly connect it to downtown..

Definitely a fan of the Blue Rose. I had an internship with the McIntosh Group, who designed it! I hadn't been there since when The Gathering Place was under construction, which seemed to hinder the crowds I was used to seeing there. Hopefully it's picked back up...

Just out of curiosity, what is the foot/bike traffic on that Midland Valley Trail? I've never used it as when I visit I'm closest to Lafortune Park and just use that trail.

The stretch from Maple Park to the river is fairly busy on nice days, especially now with the Gathering Place open.  Not very well-utilized from what I've seen on the northern sections near Centennial Park.  Nowhere near as busy as the Katy Trail in Dallas though.
