Cherokee Point Conservation Area
In June 2012, Osceola County purchased the Cherokee Point Conservation Area with funds from the Environmental Lands Conservation Program, formally known as SAVE Osceola. Located west of Canoe Creek Road and Kissimmee Park Road at the north end of Cherokee Road, the property consists of 183 acres hugging the shores of Lake Tohopekaliga, in the serene Goblet's Cove area.
The property protects picturesque shoreline of lake littoral zone with wet pastures and an upland peninsula. A former residence will be converted to an information center, while the barn has been retrofitted as a rental pavilion. This site is frequently visited by wildlife, especially a variety of bird species, such as the endangered Everglades snail kite, Sandhill Crane, Bald Eagle, Caracara, white pelican (winter) and several waterfowl species.
Cherokee Point is open to the public for passive recreational use and serves as a conservation area for native wildlife and vegetation habitat.
