This park was one of the original parks designed by famed landscape architect Frederick Law Olmsted. Arguably the most popular attraction at the park is its two and a half mile Scenic Loop trail. This park is a combination of rolling hills, woodlands and open meadows. There is also an archery range, small fishing lake, as well as numerous other park facilities. The fishing lake is now a part of the Department of Fish and Wildlife's Fishing in Neighborhoods program.. This means it will receive regular stockings of catfish and trout, and periodic stockings of bass and panfish as necessary. The total area of the park is 390 acres and is home to the 9-hole Cherokee golf course, one of the oldest municipal courses in the state.
