Sand Springs is Oklahoma's only planned industrial town. In 1907, oilman Charles Page founded the town as an envisioned haven for orphans and widows. Proximity to Tulsa has fueled Sand Spring's growth over the years. Today, however, the town is developing its own distinctive character, stemming from its nexus of cultural sites and natural treasures. The 1300-acre Keystone Ancient Forest is home to 300-year-old cedars and 400 and 500-year-old post-oak trees, all predating the birth of the U.S. More of the area's natural beauty and recreational opportunities are found in Keystone State Park, a family fun haven featuring 22 lake-view cabins with fireplaces, picnic areas, tent campsites, a children's fishing pond and hiking trails.
