From the air, the property just looks like a large block of timber and it certainly has plenty of hardwoods blanketing its surface. But you have to look a little closer to experience the real magic of the property. We can start with the terrain. It has 160 feet of elevation change. In places there are vertical cliffs and sheer bluffs that yield great views of the Arkansas River that runs for over a mile along its north boundary. Here you can routinely see Bald and Golden Eagles perched in the trees. Rivers are the last great travel corridors for wildlife and the Bluffs serves as a sanctuary for deer, turkey and other wildlife species traveling along the river.
Crystal clear creeks flow through two major drainages and there are also two excellent lake sites totally contained by the property. In addition, a natural bowl in the topography has been investigated and found to be ideal for a 18,000 seat amphitheater.
But the truly magical part of the property are the bluffs along the northern boundary. They are magnificent. Rising vertically from the river, they are shrouded in timber, but once you find them, you cannot stop exploring. The bluffs are made of limestone rock that has been dissolved along joint fractures to produce a series of open rooms connected by halls eroded through the massive blocks of rock. Due to the lack of any type of fence or gate, the public has been using this area as a free state park. There is some graffitti on the rock and trash, consequently, the property needs to be secured with a fence. There are also numerous off road trails being driven by dirt bikes and ATVs. However, the flip side of this coin is that people are naturally drawn to this area, and this draw could be monetized or it could be completely shut down and saved for friends and family.
The property is surrounded by development on three sides and happens to have a 12 inch water line on the east boundary and a 16 inch water line along the south boundary. Sewer mains cross the property and run along the east and west boundaries. Along the south boundary, 41st street carries 14,000 cars per day. Tulsa Community College borders on the southeastern corner and Chandler Park borders the northeastern corner of the property. A low water dam is planned along the stretch of the river bordering the property. Consequently, this property has the necessary infrastructure and tremendous opportunities for residential, retail, and entertainment developments.
The Bluffs represent a last best chance to either smartly manage a large natural setting by either preserving as is or developing with a focus on highlighting the natural beauty of the property. The property can be bought as a single piece or split into the eastern 480 acres and western 850 acres.
