Blue Whale development proposal includes Airbnbs, mini golf, trails and more

A development proposal suggests significant upgrades could be possible for the Blue Whale, a Route 66 attraction in Catoosa.

Hampton Creative, a Tulsa-based independent branding agency, created a master site plan that was shared this week with city officials at a park board meeting.

“I’ve been on the park board about two years, and this is something we have been talking about for a year and a half or longer, trying to kind of take the Blue Whale park to the next level before the (Route 66) centennial shows up here in 2026,” City Councilor Kyle Gibson said, adding that the park board has the support of the mayor and the City Council.
