It's more than a catchy phrase, it's an invitation.
Yes, the secret is out.
Jenks is Right Where You Want to Be.
The City of Jenks provides a small town atmosphere with big city convenience minutes away. Located along the West Bank of the Arkansas River, Jenks is proud to be the host of the region's first river entertainment/activity center. The City of Jenks is revolutionizing the tourism market of Oklahoma. Beginning with the opening of the Oklahoma Aquarium (www.okaquarium.org ) in May of 2003, the City saw over 450,000 people and over 100,000 school children accept that invitation by experiencing this world class facility the first year. This success continues with RiverWalk Crossing. This dynamic new development is home to retail, restaurants, and office space. The RiverWalk Crossing Plaza overlooking the Arkansas River also serves as an outdoor dining space, and the amphitheater hosts live concerts and events. An eight-screen movie theatre is at the center of this unique dining, shopping, and entertainment venue. The 75-room Holiday Inn Express Hotel & Suites is located adjacent to the Oklahoma Aquarium. Jenks looks forward in anticipation of more Riverfront venues with the addition of River View Center, the Village at Towne Square, and the River District, a regional urban village.
The City of Jenks is also proud to be recognized as the Antique Capital of Oklahoma. Downtown Jenks offers the charm and lifestyle of a small community. The turn-of-the-century look that reflects the Jenks downtown offers a quaint and unique shopping experience.
With over 300 new homes being built each year, people are accepting the invitation to become Jenks residents. With a nationally recognized Malcolm Baldridge Award winning school system, quiet neighborhoods, and quality housing, it's no wonder that Jenks is the second fastest growing City in the State.
As the years have progressed, Jenks has developed from a small, suburban town to a City which stands on its own, poised to lead the state in the development of quality housing, business environments, and tourism growth. All this and still maintaining that small town feel that lets you know you're "Home". It is no wonder Money Magazine named Jenks one of “The Country’s Best Places to Live” in 2007.
