Romare Bearden Park is a 5.4-acre public park located at 300 S. Church Street in Charlotte, North Carolina. Named for Charlotte born artist Romare Bearden, it opened in late August 2013. It is across the street from BB&T Ballpark, the home of the International League's Charlotte Knights.

Located in Uptown Charlotte, the park offers fitness and cultural arts programs throughout the year. The park design is based on Bearden’s collages and paintings as interpreted by supervising artist Norie Sato. It features two gardens, a courtyard of dining tables with chairs on a bed of crushed granite, a formal event green field, a play area with interactive digital chimes including dance chimes, and several waterfalls.

  • 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.
