Fred's Facts

Cherokee Park, considered Olmsted’s most scenic work, focuses on the landscape experience of traversing from stream valley to ridgeline while Shawnee Park is fitted out for a variety of activities that bring people together, including a formal flower garden, a bandstand, and a great lawn for sporting events.

This small neighborhood park, a popular place for summer concerts and festivals, was originally purchased in 1905 from the Baringer Land Company.

Originally, this park served as part of a plan to make a more natural border for Cherokee Park. Willow Park achieved its own identity when Willow Avenue was extended to Cherokee Parkway in 1946.

Meet Willow Park Volunteers!
Volunteers from Cherokee Triangle Assocation help spruce up their small neighborhood park throughout the year. Projects include reseeding the lawnscape, weeding and mulching trees and plant beds, scraping and refinishing park benches, painting the Gazebo trim and the small park kiosk. Their efforts help to keep the park beautiful for visitors to their annual Art Fair and Summer Concert Series. Check out photos from recent events!
