Cherokee Park Twilight Hike

Ever wonder what Cherokee Park is like after dark? This is your chance to experience the sights and sounds of nighttime in this beloved Olmsted Park! Education Program Manager Matt Spalding will lead a family-friendly hike on flat, natural trails through the woods in the Bonnycastle Hill area of the park. We’ll watch for fireflies, listen for nocturnal wildlife (maybe we’ll even hear one of the owls that calls Cherokee Park home!), and end the evening with complimentary s’mores.

Meet at 8:30pm at Hogan Fountain Pavilion (known as the “Teepee”). Tour ends by 10:00pm. Children should be accompanied by an adult. Tour is rain or shine (but may be subject to postponement or cancellation in the event of severe weather). Weather-appropriate clothes and footwear with good tread are encouraged. Glow sticks will be provided for safety.

Tickets are FREE for Olmsted Parks Conservancy members and $8 for non-members (children under 13 may accompany a paid adult for free).
