I have visited this park several times, driving through and visiting. It has a lot to offer, if you don't mind being around other people. It is big enough to where you don't feel crowded, but there are always cyclists and cars speeding by. Great for picnics or just a day with nature. The view is always beautiful and it... More

If you are into walking, jogging, biking, golfing, archery, sightseeing, hiking, or if you are looking for a place to play and have a picnic, or if you just want to drive around and enjoy the scenic views, there are places for you...

Frederick Law Olmstead designed Cherokee Park -- he's the same landscape architect who designed NYC's Central Park. It's a scenic and lively place -- there are lots of runners, bicyclists, families playing in the many different portions of this large park. There's something for everyone.

My dog and I go to Cherokee regularly and it's conveniently located and very pretty. In warmer weather, she used to be able to swim in the creek and drink the water In recent years the water is no longer safe so keep your dogs out of the water! There is a permit dog park, open dark park, trails, and... More
