Following the passage of the VisionTulsa citywide bond issue, Tulsa County Expo Square is expanding and renovating their facilities. Our team has provided programming, planning, design and construction administration services for a new equine facility, event plaza, signage and event stage for the Tulsa County Fairgrounds.
The nearly 129,000-square-foot equine facility sits along the side of the Fair Meadows racetrack and will contain 384 Slide-N' Glide style stalls aiding in an efficient turn-over between events. A 100' x 200' warm-up arena, will function as a saddling paddock during race season, connected to the track and connected to the adjacent Super Duty Arena. The new facility is equipped with exhibitor services including offices, restrooms, laundry, space for veterinary services and for jockeys.
Two stories of multi-purpose event space will have direct views out onto the track, new plaza and into the arena/saddling area, with fully equipped concessions. Patrons also have easy access to teller and wagering booths from both the inside and the outside of the facility.
The new barn is designed for flexibility to be able to accommodate Fair Meadows race events for two months during the summer as well as horse and livestock shows throughout the remainder of the year, including the Tulsa State Fair.
