The Muscogee Creek Nation said they plan to construct a $22 million entertainment venue in Tulsa. The Nation will invest $11 million in the project, and its partner, RW Restaurant Group, will provide the remaining $11 million, The Tulsa World reported Wednesday.

"There will be nothing like it within a 250-mile radius of Tulsa," Chief George Tiger said at a press conference. The new venue is located at the RiverWalk Crossing in Jenks, Oklahoma, and the tribe said it will offer high-tech golf and family oriented games, restaurants, a sports bar and corporate space. The facility will also provide private meeting and party spaces. "As this project moves forward in the coming weeks and months, we will announce additional retail outlets, vendors and entertainment options along the RiverWalk," Tiger said in a news release. "This is an exciting time for us as we continue making the RiverWalk Crossing into a entertainment destination for everyone to enjoy."

They hope to break ground on the complex in the coming weeks; the project's expected completion date is 2017, PublicRadioTulsa.com reported.
