Tour Description: Join Olmsted Parks Conservancy's certified tour guide Denise Davis for the second in a series of walking tours in Cherokee Park. As a city park, Cherokee has been shaped by several influences: generous residents who have donated special gifts, storms that have wreaked havoc in its woodlands, and the interests and desires of the many diverse people who visit this beautiful space. Hear the back stories behind familiar park features like the "Teepee" and Enid Yandell's Daniel Boone statue and Hogan Fountain...and find out what might have been if certain people in the past had their way.

Tour Notes: Wear comfortable walking shoes, bring a water bottle, and meet 10 minutes prior to tour start. Children accompanied by adults and leashed dogs are welcome! Tour meets rain or shine but may be cancelled in the event of severe weather.
