One of Pryor’s most appealing qualities is its far reaching lifestyle options and quality of life features.
Beautiful scenery around Pryor attracts all who love nature and outdoor life. An abundance of lakes, parks and waterfalls provide opportunities for anyone who enjoys nature walks, fishing and all water sports at their finest. Pryor is located in the “Heart of Green Country,” less than 50 miles from more than 2,500 miles of lakeshore - and just 10 minutes from Lake Hudson one of Oklahoma’s most beautiful lakes and an angler’s paradise.
Discover Downtown Pryor - with blocks of unique locally-owned shops and boutiques. Take in a movie at the Allred Theater - a restored 1916 vaudeville movie house. Stop by one of our restaurants for local home-style southern cooking and bar-b-que, as well as continental grills, Mexican, Chinese, Italian, and major chain restaurants.
Visit the Coo-Y-Yah Museum, housed in the Old Katy Depot or Rabbit Studio Gallery - a working studio and gift shop of nationally acclaimed Native American Artists, Bill and Traci Rabbit.
Those who enjoy the outdoor life will enjoy Pryor Creek Nature Trail, along Pryor Creek, which is easy for walking, jogging and mountain bike riding. Play a round of golf at Pryor Creek Golf Course. Or, take in a day of fishing at Lake Hudson, which is only eight miles east of Pryor; and, is acclaimed as one of the best bass fishing lakes in Oklahoma.
Our community enjoys an abundance of lush parks. Whitaker Park, located in the town center, provides a splash pad, tennis courts, a swimming pool, measured walking trail, fishing pond, sand volleyball and basketball courts, playgrounds and picnic pavilions. Centennial Park is also equipped with a measured walking trail, as well as fitness stations along the trail.
Additional city parks are equipped with walking trails, playground areas and ball fields. Pryor’s Baseball & Softball Complex enjoys 12 fields and is considered to be one of the most popular in Northeast Oklahoma. The Soccer Complex is equipped with 14 fields.
The community's quality of life commitment is never more evident than at the Pryor Creek Recreation Center (PCRC). The community-funded Center includes an Olympic-sized swimming pool, state of the art exercise equipment, gymnasiums, walking track, child care center, and classrooms. Classes are offered include group fitness, aerobics, yoga, weight training and water aerobics.
The City of Pryor believes in all-around fitness. It provides services for every member of the community from the youngest to the most senior - and, always welcomes visitors.
The community is currently in the process of a public-private partnership which will see the completion of Pryor Trails - a network of off-road, multi-use paved trails and on-street bicycle facilities. The Master Plan was developed to address the trail need of our community residents and visitors related to recreation, transportation and economic pursuits.
