This is a neat part of Charlotte and right downtown. Close to the ball parks, shops and restaurants.

I've always enjoyed going to the music concert series in the park, especially at this location. It was always a great mix of different ages. You would see different couples up in the front dancing. I love watching people dance in sync. I do wish they had a playground for the kids but they do have the water fountain that the kids can play in. There is a huge field you could have a picnic in. You could always grab a pizza at mellow mushroom and coffee at Starbucks and eat it at the park. There are several places you can get food from that are right across the street or a block away. In addition, this location is a great place to watch fireworks. Just make sure you come early to get a parking spot and a place to sit. I will post some pictures soon.
We more or less discovered this park by chance. We found it lovely on arrival. There was a beautiful couple enjoying a lovers celebration having a picnic in the grass. Personal sax player serenading them as they laughed and enjoyed each other's company. I was over joyed to see fathers with their sons playing and bounding. This was my last stop in Charlotte before heading to the airport and it truly brought the whole experience to a magnificent end. Only reason it didn't get 5 stars because it's not big enough I wish the park was larger with more to see. But all in all the serenity it offers brought peace to my soul as I left this beautiful place ✨️.
