Tree Runner at OU does not offer prepared or fresh food for takeout or group meals. Catering is a popular option that can make event planning easy and efficient. Groups large and small often inquire about using a catering service to provide food and drink at TreeRunner.
Tree Runner at OU has worked with a number of local catering services to provide accommodations for groups on site. Let us know if you are interested in specific vendor recommendations!
Food Trucks Or Carts
Catering for groups using food trucks is an option available to groups climbing at our park, though their arrangement must be coordinated with the TreeRunner staff as there are specific restrictions on where food trucks may be located on site. Power or water service is not available for these vendors. Food trucks must be self-contained and are responsible to provide park management with a Certificate of Insurance (with “additional insured”) prior to the event. Any damage to the host grounds is the responsibility of the group.
What You Can Bring
Although there are some picnic tables that can be reserved for use, most large events find that they need more tables. Any tables, chairs, linens, or other party supply items not listed above can be rented through local party supply companies.
Portable restrooms are available in the park for our guests. Separate or private restroom service must be arranged by the group coordinator.
Large groups often choose to rent large tents to support their event. Other services sometimes sought for special events might be valet services, entertainers, bouncers, field games, DJ’s, and face painters. All of these vendors permitted but must be approved and coordinated through the Park Manager.
Golf carts are not permitted on campus but the use of any mobility scooter is allowed.
