Nice and easy

Great pedestrian pathway between the Brady district and downtown Tulsa. Very safe, and the new foot lights make walking fun

This is really is a neat visit! Especially on a festive evening out in downtown Tulsa! Odd acoustics make you feel like you are At The Center of the Universe!

Difficult to explain outdoor aural phenomenon, you gotta' check it out. Takes just a few minutes and worth it!

This is kind of a neat local legend. You can stand here and talk, and your voice echoes back to you.

It's fun to watch the reactions of other as they hit "the spot". The acoustics are very interesting. I'd recommend a quick stop to anyone passing near.

I need to video people as they step into the circle. Facial expressions are always fun once they realize the effect. This is a quick stop about 10 minutes. At night the extra light effects are cool.

I thought this was so cool! Now my dad could not experience it & I believe it is because he wears hearing aides so it may not work for those of you that wear them! Worth the walk & interesting things nearby to discover. I recommend searching it out & experiencing the Center of the Universe. It even sounds cool!

I didn't experience the sound phenomena that was supposed to occur. There is a lovely view though. It's a good spot to get some photos.

Who wouldn't want to go to The Center of the Universe and contemplate the mysteries of life? A fun cool little spot right in downtown Tulsa where you can here an echo with no real reason why.
