Cherokee Park Playground

The playground was replaced in 2018 and the new play area opened in spring of 2019. The new playground consists of an adorable little crooked house climbing structure for younger kids and a 24-foot-tall “sky tower” climbing structure with netting and tornado slide for the bigger kids. It’s impressive!
