Bixby: The Garden Spot of Oklahoma
Bixby is a suburb of Tulsa, Oklahoma, and home to a growing population of young professionals and families. Bixby is located just 20 miles southeast of Tulsa and, as a result, offers a multitude of options for dining, shopping, and recreation both within the immediate community and greater metropolitan area. The city is nicknamed “The Garden Spot of Oklahoma” for its rich agricultural heritage. In fact, despite its modern offerings, the city remains a popular location for purchasing fresh produce and is an active sod-growing center. Bixby is an excellent area for those who love the outdoors, as the city is home to the highly-rated public parks Haikey Creek Park and Lake Bixhoma Park. Here, you’ll also find Washington Irving Memorial Park and Arboretum, which is dedicated to the famous author in remembrance of his days spent in the area while participating in an expedition to the West in October 1832. With contemporary opportunities and thriving natural landscapes, it’s no wonder why Bixby has been rated one of CNN’s Best Places to Live!
