As a hobby photographer this is one of my favorite parks for pictures and enjoying the outdoors. The kids love all the playgrounds and for the adults there is plenty of places to walk and ride bikes. Great way to spend an afternoon.

A wonderful to drive, walk or ride a bike through. Many of the roads have designated walking/biking lanes. Playgrounds scattered around, plenty of places to sit and relax. An oasis in the middle of the city.

Slopping roads to walk, run, bike or drive. Picnics, grassy walks, serious runny or quiet strolling. If you are in the area take a moment! You'll be glad you did.

Love the layout of the park. A full lane for bikers, runners, walkers is wonderful. You can get off the roadway to explore if you like so seems to be something for most fitness choices. Well kept, clean, and a great place if you have dogs too.

Very nice to ride, jog or take a nature stroll on Sunday afternoon, especially during spring. They also have picnic areas with BBQs and golfing. I do go there regularly to bike.

This is a wonderful park with lots of acres. We enjoy walking in Cherokee Park which connects with other parks in the area. It is also a good place to hike and bike. There is designated paved space for you to walk, run, or bike on without worrying about cars passing you too close. It is also a great place... More

Cherokee is a gorgeous park with lots of great paths. Lots of area to run, walk, or ride. Be sure you have a map.

Great park, a lot of room and a lot of great parking spots to get off the road and take a nice hike. Spent about 3 hours there in the woods with my kids hanging in hammocks. A great day!
