Famous for its spring azaleas, the 132-acre Honor Heights Park in Muskogee includes a well marked rose garden, trees, trails, ponds and an arboretum. Built as a tribute to World War I veterans, the park also features a stunning display of Christmas lights from late November through December. Popular spots throughout the park include the Kirschner Fountain and the picture perfect Rose Garden Gazebo.
The Butterfly House is home to several different kinds of butterflies native to Oklahoma. While walking through this open air sanctuary, these colorful insects will gently fly around and welcome you into their habitat. Butterfly viewing is usually best in the summer months and the Butterfly Papilion includes a gorgeous array of plants and flowers that attract the stunning creatures each year.
Muskogee's Honor Heights Park is also home to the annual Azalea Festival each April and Symphony in the Park in June. Other facilities include an amphitheater, tennis courts, swimming pool, paddle boats, water splash pad, picnic areas, playground, ball field and the Five Civilized Tribes Museum, which is located in the southeast corner of the park. A gift shop and snack bar are open seasonally.
