Wild Cherry Park

Wild Cherry Park was located sixteen miles north of Dayton on Garland Road, just off State Route 48, between West Milton and Union. It had shows irregularly during the mid to late 1960s, featuring both bluegrass and country acts – sometimes on the same show. A good example was “Tennessee Day” on July 17, 1966, when they had bluegrass artists Bennie Birchfield and Jim McCall and the Bluegrass Partners, Red Spurlock and the Powell Brothers, Herman Holt and the Mountain Boys, and country artists Donnie Bowser and the Stonehearts, Mary Lou Turner and the Twin Valley Boys, Ronnie Dale, and Luke Gibbons, among others. They also had nationally known artists from time to time, including Bill Monroe.
