Cherie Road park is located off the waterfront trail, in close proximity to a few other parks.

The park consists of a butterfly garden, which is located in an environment that attracts butterflies and other types of moths. Visitors can sit on the benches nearby and witness exotic species of butterflies. The footpath from the garden leads to a small hill, which provides ample space of green grass to hold picnics and partake in any outdoor games that visitors enjoy. On the side of the park is a staircase that leads to a small beach below. The beach provides visitors with the option of going swimming, playing sports, sun tanning and starting a bonfire. This location provides visitors with a unique opportunity to incorporate quite a few nature inspired activities into their picnic plans.
