Jenks Area Information




Jenks supplies a small town atmosphere with big city convenience of Tulsa just minutes away up Riverside Drive or H/W 75 to downtown. It is situated along the West Bank of the Arkansas River, Jenks is proud to be the host of the region's first river entertainment/activity center. Jenks revolutionized the tourism market of Oklahoma, by opening the Oklahoma Aquarium in May of 2003.

Although Jenks city is on the west side of the Arkansas River, the school district spreads both east and west of the river.

Featured twice in "Southern Living" magazine and on the television program, "Oklahoma Living", Jenks´ reputation as the "Antique Capital of Oklahoma" extends far beyond even the state line. However Guthrie which is north of Oklahoma City could soon overtake Jenks and steal the epithet.

With numerous, specialty, and home décor stores, including six malls, hundreds of dealers join together, offering residents and visitors a one-of-a-kind sidewalk shopping experience. Link this with superb restaurants serving everything from fast food to fine cuisine, Jenks has something for everyone to sample.

Jenks Public Schools has gained countrywide acknowledgment over the years for both its athletic and academic programs. Over 1,000 teachers are employed in producing well-rounded students who receive a wide-ranging education. The motto of Jenks Public Schools: "Tradition of Excellence, With a Vision for Tomorrow."

During the past years, several achievements have contributed to the continued growth of Jenks beyond the original settled area. The Tulsa water system and a gas-fired electric generating plant by the Public Service Company of Oklahoma came to Jenks in the 1970's. In the 1980's the Kimberly-Clark manufacturing facility was added to the Jenks and the number and quality of neighborhoods expanded. This brought much residential growth to the area.
In 2000, over $1/2 billion in new and existing industrial construction costs were also added to the Jenks tax base. Kimberly-Clark started their $230 million dollar expansion to their manufacturing facility to include a paper towel division and distribution center. Plus, Green Country Energy started construction on a new 810-megawatt natural gas fired electric generating facility.

Citizens of Jenks value the small town spirit while having the big city conveniences at their fingertips. A number of recreational facilities are available including thirteen parks, tennis courts, and two community swimming pools. A sports complex for adults and youth with football fields, softball, and baseball diamonds are also available. For golf enthusiasts South Lakes Golf Course, an 18 hole, public course with a driving range, is the perfect answer for those people looking for a place close by to tee off.

Numerous events take place throughout the year for Jenks residents to enjoy. Events such as the Old Fashioned Fun Family Fourth of July and the Holiday Open House emphasize activities that the whole family can enjoy.

With over 25 new Jenks home subdivisions either in the development stage or under construction in the area it is obvious that more and more people are thinking of Jenks to settle in. Indeed once again Jenks has been voted in the top 100 best small cites to live by CNN/Money in 2007, coming in at 43.
