The Country Aire Trail is a trail parallel to Fry Creek and a break from the rest of the Country Aire Trail system. It is one of two hiking trails in the area, the other is the Broken Arrow Trail.
Jenks Aquarium Trail runs for 2.25 miles, Newblock Park Trail for 1.5 miles and Creek Turnpike Trail runs parallel to TurnPike Creek. A footbridge connects the Jenkks River area with downtown and a parking lot at the intersection of Creek Street and Creek Avenue.
The Liberty Trail runs for 2.5 miles and meets the Mingo Trail at the intersection of Creek Street and Creek Avenue in the Jenkks River.
The Cleveland Trail in Cleveland, Oklahoma, follows the deserted right-hand lane of the Midland Valley Railroad in Jenkks River Valley. This community served as the terminus for the Midland Valley Railroad, a branch line that stretched from Arkansas and Oklahoma to the Kansas State Line.
The nearest Jenks library was a 1961 municipal and county loan that created a commission for the Jenkks library. In 1954, a bond issue took the construction of a school, the first public school in the state of Oklahoma, into the hands of the citizens. The school opened in 1954 with a grant from the Oklahoma State Board of Education.
In 1948, a replacement two-lane bridge was built, which still stands today and serves as the main link between Jenks and the rest of Oklahoma City. In 1959, the high schools were completed and remain at Second Avenue and B Street. The location was selected in the early 1960s as part of an extension to the town hall building for what would become the new town hall.
It provides access to the land, serves as the main point of contact between the city of Jenks and the rest of Oklahoma City, and helps to stimulate the growth of the Jenks economy. The service is provided by the Oklahoma Air National Guard, Oklahoma State University and Tulsa International Airport.
Jenks is home to many small and large companies, including Kimberly-Clark, the world's largest manufacturer of personal care products. In the 1980s, Kimberly Clark built a manufacturing facility that continues to provide jobs for the region. Popular tourist attractions include the free-standing Aquarium and Jenks' downtown shops, including boutiques, restaurants, antiques and the Arts District. The city centre is home to locally owned shops, as well as a variety of restaurants and retail outlets.
Jenks is also home to many antique shops, and the annual Jenks Antiques Festival, the largest antiques festival in Oklahoma State, parades through the city streets each year, with the Main art attracting up to 12,000 visitors.
The library also has a well-rounded collection that reflects the interests and needs of the Jenks community. The Jenks Library has served Jenkks and the surrounding community for over 50 years and will continue to be an important source of information and culture.
On November 22, 2005, it was announced that the Board of Trustees of Jenks Public Library, in partnership with the City of Jenkks, announced the appointment of a new Director of Library Services and the establishment of the Jennifer L. and Robert E. Jenkins Library Foundation on February 1, 2011.
With its mission of education and conservation, the Oklahoma Aquarium has become a gateway to new opportunities for economic development. A downtown business and development coordinator is hired by a grant and is tasked with locating businesses on Main Street and developing a business development plan for the city.
A hundred years later, the city evolved from a small town with rail links to a city that was on the verge of becoming an important regional destination. The economy of the area improved in the 1920s, when many Bulgarian families immigrated to the area to farm. When oil production fell out of favor, Jenks people adopted an agrarian lifestyle, while manufacturing came to the city to provide much-needed work to the growing population. In this decade, a new fired power plant and the construction of an oil refinery were also opened.
Median income per household in the city is $54,637, and median income per family is $61,050. The racial affiliation of the cities is similar to that of many other cities in Oklahoma City, including Oklahoma City, Tulsa, Norman and Norman City.
At the 2010 census, a total of 1,743,821 people of all ages lived in the city, 9.1% of whom were 65 years or older. The population is spread across a broad age spectrum, with an average age of 35, equivalent to the population of Oklahoma City, Tulsa, Norman and Norman City.
According to the US Census Bureau, the city has 3,592 residential units, of which 2,821 are on land and 1,743 on water. In 2010, 3,592 apartments were occupied, an increase of 2.5% compared to the last census in 2010.
