    TULSA, Okla. - A new food truck park is coming to Tulsa and many people are excited.
     
    “This is huge for everybody,” said Josh Lynch.
     
    Lynch is one of the owners of the new Park in the Pearl food truck park near 5th and Peoria in Tulsa’s Pearl District.
     
    “We’ve built a lot of tables and chairs out of pallets. We’ll have a huge canopy of bulb lights,” Lynch said.
     
    Tulsans said they’re already on board.
     
    “I’m definitely going to go check it out,” said resident Maureen Cox.
     
    The permanent food truck park is a big-city concept that Lynch has wanted to bring to Tulsa for years.
     
    “This gives us a place where if you’re in the mood for food trucks, you don’t have to try to go find us. You can just come here,” said Lynch.
     
    He said it also lessens the burden on truck operators when it comes to city regulations.
     
    “There are not a lot of spots where the food truck can go. I think if they have one location and can all be there, it’s great for people,” Lynch said.
     
    Food trucks, local vendors, live musicians and more will gather at the park six days a week. The trucks will be there on a rotating schedule.

    Lynch is holding a test run of the park this weekend. The park will open Saturday from 10 a.m. to 11 p.m. and Sunday from noon to 6 p.m.
     
    He plans to open full time before summer starts.
