Cherokee Regional Park

About Cherokee Regional Park

Realized as a potential recreational and natural green space in the early 1900s, Cherokee Regional Park has since developed into one of Saint Paul’s most visited parks, bringing in over 300,000 visitors a year. The park contains playgrounds, tennis courts, basketball courts, bbq grills, and more spread out across 100 acres of land.

Cherokee Regional Park’s popularity is also boosted by the presence of two open-air shelters that see generous use throughout the season. The larger of the two shelters can accommodate 100 people while the smaller of the two can hold up to 60 guests. Electricity is also available at up to 110 volts at either location.

The possession and consumption of non-intoxicating malt liquor (containing not more than 3.2% alcohol by weight) is permitted from 8 a.m. to 8 p.m. within designated picnic areas. Glass beverage containers are not allowed.

Reservation Information

Cherokee Regional Park has one small and one large shelter available to rent. The large shelter seats approximately 100 people and the small shelter seats approximately 60 people. Electricity is available at both.

Play Area Renovation

Legacy funding has been secured to remove and replace the existing play area. The play area will be under construction from May to September 2018. It will be unavailable for use during this time. For project updates please visit the Cherokee Regional Park Play Area Improvements page.
