Parks & Recreation
The community’s dedication to a healthy lifestyle and an enjoyment of the outdoors is evident in the investments made in neighborhood parks, public green spaces, and miles of trails available for walkers, runners and cyclists.
In addition to the many neighborhood parks, Jenks is home to many public green spaces.
Located at Elm St. and Date St.
Home to two state-of-the-art playgrounds, a walking trail and ample open space, Veterans Park is a 19-acre oasis for families looking to pass the day.
The Oklahoma Department of Wildlife Conservation stocks the casting pond with catfish, bass and sunfish. The pond also features handicap-accessible fishing docks. Only an Oklahoma fishing license is required to enjoy this amenity.
