One of 4 parks that serves the beautiful neighborhood of Benton Park, Cherokee Park is in the shadow of I-55.
Lemp Avenue, Wyoming and Utah Streets and the Interstate easement outline the park. Just south of Arsenal Street, this park affords good views of the historic Anheuser-Busch InBev brewery.
The homes that line Cherokee Park are classic Benton Park
The vast majority of this park is really just grass from the outfields of both fields.
The exception is the southeastern section which is quite shaded with nice large and newly planted trees. This section of the park has swings and a playground and a building with storage and bathrooms. It was locked
This was just one of the parks that was kind of meh. Having 3 kids, I am constantly running around to CYC soccer, baseball, etc. Many of the games are in the county. As I visit these parks with perfectly playable fields, I wonder why the city can't organize a youth sports league to compete with the every decreasing and consolidating Catholic population in St. Louis. These baseball fields/soccer fields just seem to be moth-balled, lying in wait for a greater use.
