I have grown up here my whole life and honestly can't envision living anywhere else. Sand Springs has that perfect mixture of small town feel while still having the pleasures and fun of a larger community. Only 10 minutes from almost anywhere in Tulsa it offers plenty of options for fun, but the people in Sand Springs are really what set it apart from other communities. An example of this is in the past five years we have dealt with a tornado and currently severe flooding, while not getting much help from other than each other we are handling the flood and displacement or residents, as well as had the tornado damage cleaned up within a week and rebuilding. I love Sand Springs and hope to live here my whole life.

I love Sand Springs! It is close enough to Tulsa that you can be in the city in 10 minutes, but it also has that small town feeling. They have many parades and festivals throughout the year to attend. This community is very good for families with small children and/or elderly. There are many activities for retired or elderly citizens like Bingo nights, quilting groups, and golf clubs.
Sand Springs is a wonderful community to live in. It is a smaller town, so most people know everybody in town. Everyone is willing to offer a hand to others in need and are willing to give support. It is a great place to start your family if you are looking to have a great small town feel! Sand Springs has been updating many of their businesses to better the revenue and keep up the curb appeal.
