The Romare Bearden Park in downtown Charlotte is a fitting tribute to the African-American artist. It's well maintained, the sculptures are great and there's a section for children. There are also..... more »
I recently enjoyed my experience at this particular Park. Well small oh, it is quite gorgeous. Beautiful landscaping and the chance to enjoy some of Charlotte's finest architecture. This park has the feel of a small town with all the class of an upscale big city. The fish Fountain is enjoyable spot for children to cool off in the summer months. Great place to walk the dog and sit a spell. Exceptionally clean & religiously manicured. Surrounded by many of Charlotte's finest restaurants.
I love this park! It’s very close to my office uptown, it’s great to walk to if you work in the city and also if your visiting uptown, a relaxing green space to take a break from walking. It’s very well maintained and I have never felt unsafe there. There is a ton of restaurants that are all walkable to and from this park. There is a cool water feature wall with LED lights there and has a great view of the Charlotte skyline for some great photos. Highly recommend if you’re in Uptown.
