The Osage Prairie Trail is located on the old Midland Valley Rail bed. This railroad was abandoned, and
through Vision 2025 monies, the trail was able to be developed. The Osage Prairie Trail is a rails to trails project that is 14.5 miles long and extends from downtown Tulsa, near the OSU campus to Highway 20 in Skiatook. A future expansion will extend the trail to Birch Lake in Osage County. It is a 10' wide paved trail, including 8 pedestrian bridges, one of which was a renovated historical highway bridge. The trail has an easy grade, since it was once a railroad corridor. Parking is available in Skiatook as well as at the OSU campus and in Sperry. Parking at Central Park in Skiatook features bike racks, water fountains, parking, restrooms (during season) and benches.

The Skiatook community pool was opened in the 1950s, and provided swimming lessons to thousands of Skiatook children until 2001 when the pool was closed. The pool was completely rebuilt to include a wading area, water sprayers and a diving board. The new pool opened to the public the summer of 2007, and has been a popular family gathering place throughout the summer ever since. There is a lifeguard on duty at all times, and there is a concession stand for a cold drink or popsicle. During the summer, swim lessons are taught in the mornings before the pool is open to the public. The pool is available for rent for private parties and events. For more information on swim lessons or private rental, please contact the City of Skiatook at (918) 396-1154.
