The Tulsa Parks Department will hold a public meeting Thursday night to discuss the results from its recent master plan survey.

The Department has about $30 million tax dollars to spend over the next six years. The information they received from the survey will help them develop a 10-year master plan to improve city parks and park programs.

We spoke with the Tulsa Parks Director Anna America ahead of the meeting and she said people want to see more walking trails. She admits that was not on the department's radar, but they hope to prioritize trails in the future.

"Some parts of town have great access to trails, east Tulsa doesn't. We might prioritize that a lot more there, and in another part of town prioritize something completely different they are really lacking," said America.

The meeting begins at 6 p.m. on Thursday.
