Cherry Beach Park is used as a boat ramp and sometimes a swimming beach in the summer. It is basically located under the Sharptown bridge. There are several docks for boating or fishing. There is a small beach with plenty of sand to play in for the kids. There are some trees here for shade too, which is nice. There is also a pavilion with picnic tables and a parking lot. There is a separate playground area with a fence behind it to block the road. There is a climbing wall and a slide. There are some nice views of the river from here, especially at sunset.
Can I Ingress Here?
The Google game Ingress, for Android and iPhone, is a GPS-based "capture the flag" game that interacts with "portals". These portals are real world locations that you have to physically go to, such as historical places, artwork, sculptures, parks and other public places, to interact with them via your device. This "game" is an awesome way to get out and see the world around you. www.ingress.com
Nearby Ingress Portals
There is a portal located near the park sign. There is not much of a phone signal in the Sharptown area, so expect to be patient.
