Cherokee Park, FL – Neighborhood Video

Cherokee Park has an unmistakable look. Its wide avenues and large homes, some of which date back over seventy years, mark it as a classic American suburb. It would be hard to write the history of Sarasota without a chapter on Cherokee Park. Its residents have been shaping the town for decades.

For a place that began life as a “fishing rancho” back in the late 1800’s, Cherokee Park has come a along way. Its residents have included a Russian prince, a presidential family, captains of industry, the local establishment, and, this being Sarasota, the most beloved clown in the world. The homes this eclectic group built are mostly still here, enlarged and renovated over the years, until today they manage to be nostalgic in feeling but totally up-to-date for contemporary living.
