Description:

Swan Park is comprised of a lake, with the dam and sides and small rock islands created by WPA labor out of cut native sandstone. Includes only the lake, which is about a small city block in size. The lake is now fenced off, enclosing the lake and the swans.
Swan Park is notable in the community of Tulsa because it is just that: a park for swans. The sheer uniqueness of that type of recreational facility makes it significant. The rock work along the dam, sides and islands is also notable.

VERBAL BOUNDARY DESCRIPTION: The lake encloses and is located off of Utica Avenue on 19th Streets.
