THE COMMUNITY OF SAND SPRINGS
A quiet city with friendy, down-to-earth people
The beautiful city of Sand Springs, located only six miles west of Tulsa, continues to expand and flourish. New businesses develop and thrive in this blossoming community which makes up 22 square miles of beautiful Oklahoma, plus an extended growth area of 150 square miles.
The city of Sand Springs, located in Osage and Tulsa counties, has a population of nearly 19,000 people. The estimated median household income for Sand Springs is $53,079. Sand Springs Real estate is affordable, with the median home price at $118,000. With its strong sense of community, it offers residents an attractive lifestyle.
The Sand Springs Herbal Affair and Festival—the top herbal festival in Oklahoma—is an Oklahoma favorite, with nonstop outdoor entertainment and delicious food like authentic Amish baked goods, Greek favorites like baklava, and smoked barbeque. What started as a small street sale now attracts over 25,000 people to the Charles Page Triangle Stage area in downtown Sand Springs. Over 100 vendors sell herbs, perennials, heirloom plants, and folk art in the heart of Sand Springs. Hands-on activities and games for the kids bring smiles to young and old alike.
Founded in 1911 by a philanthropist and oilman, Charles Page, Sand Springs was originally intended as a haven for widows and orphans. The children’s home is still operating and Charles Page Family Village (formerly known as the Widow’s Colony) helps single moms attend school or work to better their lives. Sand Springs was developed as a model city, and the interurban Sand Springs Railway connected its residents to Tulsa. Early manufacturing industries included the Kerr Glass Plant, which remained in business for decades.
Students are challenged, inspired, and empowered to be all they can be at Charles Page High School. CPHS seniors have been named National Merit Finalists and candidates for National Merit Scholarships. CPHS partners with Junior Achievement to provide work readiness and career planning program for students. In 2018-2019, both girls’ and boys’ CPHS basketball teams captured regional championships. The wrestling team sent six members to the State Tournament.
