A new tree was planted on Tuesday, Feb. 28 in Biscuit Acres. The tree is a Laced Bark Elm and is planted in honor of the Rotary Club of Southside Tulsa who raised private donations 8 years ago to build Biscuit Acres. An in ground recognition plaque will be placed next to the tree in the Club’s honor. The Elm was purchased with the park’s visitor donations to BAVA in the red deposit boxes. Below is a picture of the newly planted tree and a 7 year old mature version.

It is with much sadness that we announce the passing of Biscuit Acres’ first mascot at the age of 13. Sandee was a Ridgeback mix who belonged to Biscuit Acres Volunteer Association’s Treasurer, John Benjamin. She was adopted at age 1 and at 5 she was the lead dog in helping Southside Rotary Club raise the first funds for Biscuit Acres Dog Park. Also, she was an accomplished Agility Competitor for 4 years. R.I.P. Sandee.

Biscuit Acres Dog Park
At Hunter Park In South Tulsa
Biscuit Acres Dog Park was built by the Southside Rotary Club with @ $100,000 of tax-deductible donations to the Southside Rotary Foundation. Biscuit Acres opened to pooches and their owners on June 6, 2009. Since opening, the park has provided thousands of hours of play for dogs, and an outdoor sanctuary for their owners.
While the park flourishes and gains users every weekend, Biscuit Acres has been a labor of love for some people that work hard behind the scenes to ensure the park goers and their pet’s enjoyment. Biscuit Acres is managed, maintained and enhanced by the Biscuit Acres Volunteer Association (BAVA) in collaboration with the City of Tulsa Parks and Recreation Department.
BAVA is a 501c3 organization that provides hundreds of hours of service annually to the dog park by watering, spreading mulch, filling holes, collecting and bagging trash and “poop”, painting, repairing the fence, restoring grass, rounding up recycled plastic bags and providing fund raising and park beautification projects such as tree planting, table and bench assembly, memory plaques, shade sails, patios, pet fountains and much more! The City of Tulsa partners with BAVA to provide mowing, edging, water and trash pick-up services.
Biscuit Acres is something “Tulsans” Can Be Proud Of!
Biscuit Acres is where dogs bring their people: In 2012 it was ranked # 24 U.S.“Best Dog Parks” by the national publication “Dog Fancy” Magazine and in 2016 one of the top 5 U.S. dog parks by the NBC Network TV Show “The List” .
Some of the park’s features:
Visitors can enjoy and relax on quality benches and park tables
Separate sections for small and large dogs over and under 30 pounds
Each section has a water fountain and hydrant for the dogs covered by shade sails
Several large shade trees, a shade structure, lush grass and large boulders for sitting/climbing
“Poop” bags and metal scoops are provided free of charge to dog owners
Five double gate entrances are available for visitor and dog safety
Three red metal biscuit shaped cash boxes available for donations from park goers
Admission to Biscuit Acres is FREE. The 2.5 acre dog park is open to the public from 5:00 a.m. to 9:00 p.m. every Wednesday through Sunday. The park is closed for maintenance every Monday and Tuesday. All breeds of dogs are welcome at the park, but dogs must be at least 6 months old and must be spayed or neutered to interact well at the park. A complete set of rules is posted at the entrance and inside of the park.

In July 2016, Biscuit Acres lost our largest shade tree in the Park at the Southeast corner.
Biscuit Acres Volunteer Association has received approval to install a Shade Sail Structure in place of the tree to provide a new source of shade and comfort in the Park.
We need YOUR support to make this project happen. Please help the Biscuit Acres Shade Sail Project with your donations. We have a secure PAYPAL link in the upper right hand corner.
Our goal is to fund and complete the project by November 15, 2016 with the support of our dog park patrons.
Below is the design concept for the new structure…
