The staff of Cherokee Rock Village Park recently had some extra help to continue cleaning up of the dead trees that had to be cut down around some camping areas. Those volunteers were Cub Scouts from Troop 247 in Centre.
They helped pile brush, remove sticks of wood, gathered rocks to build fire rings in new camp sites. It was a big help to have the young volunteers clean up the camping area.
As the Park continues to grow, there will be need for many more “Volunteer Park Partners”. If you or your organization would like to become a Volunteer Park Partner, Contact Park Management at 256-927-7275. Through your assistance, Cherokee Rock Village Park will continue to grow and thrive as a Tourist Destination for Families to hike, go rock climbing, pic-nic, bird watch, or just enjoy the fresh air and beautiful views from the Rocks at Cherokee Rock Village.
Some of the upcoming projects will include preservation and conservation work on hiking trails, removal of dead trees and brush, upgrading the RV Campsites, upgrading some trails in park from just hiking to “Multi Purpose Trails”, expanding the number of campsites, and much more. As the Park continues to grow and improve, many other activities will be enjoyed. Park Manager, Shannon Mackey, said it is an exciting time at Cherokee Rock Village and we look forward to working with the many Volunteer Park Partners as we grow and add more for the Public to enjoy.
For those who want to help the Park grow and thrive but do not have time to Volunteer, the Park does accept financial contributions.
