Cherokee Regional Park Play Area Project
Cherokee Regional Park is a 100 acre park in the City of Saint Paul extending along the Mississippi River bluff. The park consists of mature overstory trees and turf. The park offers two open-air picnic shelters, restroom building, playground, basketball court, two tennis courts, and a backstop for an informal athletic field. The Cherokee Regional Trail runs through the park providing connections to the river and adjacent trails.
Legacy funding has been secured to remove and replace the existing play area.
