Fred's Facts

Although captivated throughout his career by large, rural parks, during his later years Frederick Law Olmsted became intrigued by the social possibilities created by small urban spaces. Small neighborhood parks, playgrounds and squares might provide opportunities for respite from the congestion and noise of urban life.

National Trails Day

May 25, 2012

Come out and celebrate National Trails Day!

June 2, 2012 at 9:00am
Cherokee Park Scenic Loop at the bottom of Cochran Hill Road

We invite you to help us recognize the recent efforts of our staff and volunteers, especially KYMBA, to restore Cherokee Park trails for everyone to enjoy! After a brief announcement, folks are invited to join Quest Outdoors staff on a group hike or trail run, or to get on a bike for a group ride led by KYMBA.

We will meet on the Scenic Loop at the bottom of Cochran Hill Road at 9:00am. The event is free and open to the public. Heine Brothers Coffee and Roobie Red Tea are generously providing their beverages for attendees.

Cross-country runners enjoy training on our park trails
