The Tulsa Garden Center, located in the historic Snedden Mansion within Woodward Park, is a nonprofit organization whose mission is to provide a variety of horticultural and environmental education opportunities for the community and to serve as horticultural headquarters for the Tulsa area.
Tulsa Garden Center fulfills this role by offering numerous lectures, classes, training, plant shows, and special events throughout the year, which are predominantly free for its Members. Additionally, over 20 affiliated organizations such as the Audubon Society, the Sierra Club, the Tulsa Rose Society, and the Tulsa Garden Club, call Tulsa Garden Center home for their horticultural and environmental activities, supplementing our extensive list of educational opportunities with even more events open the public.
From March to October, the Snedden Mansion is open to the public Tuesday through Friday 9:00am – 4:00pm, and Saturday 9:00am – 2:00pm (notwithstanding private events). During the winter months we are open on Saturdays by appointment only.
Visitors can enjoy the architecture and collection of historical photographs displayed throughout the mansion which depict the home as it was during the Snedden days. Most of the rooms still retain the craftsmanship and charm of the original home. The extensive woodcarvings, the flamboyant gold leaf ceilings and the dramatic marble floors are just a few of the original or near original elements preserved.
