Sooner Park Play Tower
Bartlesville, Oklahoma

Architect Bruce Goff was commissioned by Mrs. Harold C. Price (wife of founder of the H.C. Price Company) to design the Sooner Park Play Tower in 1963. The year 2014 marked the 50-year anniversary of the Sooner Park Play Tower, and to commemorate this, the City of Bartlesville earmarked funds, which were then increased by generous donations from the community, near and far, for the tower’s restoration. In the Fall of 2014, the tower was restored by Service and Manufacturing Corporation, and opened once again for children and adults of all ages to climb the spiral staircase to the observation deck which provides a spectacular view of the City. BKL's Stacy Loeffler, PE, was the structural engineer for the restored tower.
