Upgrades to Cherokee Rock Village
A local park known for activities such as: ballooning, rock climbing, and hiking is getting a face-lift. Cherokee Rock Village moves forward in its long-term plans to upgrade parts of its popular park. Long-term plans for Cherokee Rock Village include building the campground into an RV Campground. And, plans are also in the works to build a mountain biking area for kids which will be connected to a larger mountain biking system throughout the park. Currently, crews are working on a restroom and safe room facility near the park entrance to accommodate up to 60 people. The Cherokee County Parks and Recreation Board says the next phase of renovations will include an observation deck which will be handicap accessible.
