“Gathering Place is a beautiful public space accessible to everyone and truly is a park for all ages,” said AARP Oklahoma State Director Sean Voskuhl. “Healthy aging has been an AARP priority since our founding more than 60 years ago. Activities like the guided walks contribute to one’s health and wellbeing and studies show physical activity leads to lower rates of depression, dementia and other issues. AARP Oklahoma has been a proud community partner since the park opened and very pleased to support the new Guided Garden Tours.”
