We spend a gorgeous morning and early afternoon here walking around the park and enjoying the paths and flowering trees. We also spread out on the grass and had a picnic lunch. There were plenty of families and kids yet it was still very relaxing and enjoyable.

Except for about 10 -12 years, I have lived in the Charlotte area for 25 years. Freedom Park has always been a favorite for me and my kids. They liked the locomotive on the north end and feeding the fish during the rest of the year and the occassional trip to the Nature Museum over the bridge over Little Sugar... More

I graduated from Central High School in 1955 in Freedom park. I have returned many times, last ? 1-2 years ago for a mini reunion of my class for lunch. Fascinating to see consistently improving landmarks of old Charlotte. We moved there in 1940 when I was very young.

This park does too much -- ball fields, a train, picnic shelters, a lake, a "natural" trail. It gets way too crowded on weekends,, and shows the results of overuse the rest of the week.

This park has something for everyone at all times of the year. There's a new playground, an area for fitness buffs, a lake with a path around it for walking, and even an amphitheater. The trees are abundant so there's shade and places to picnic. If you're in Charlotte and looking for a place to relax, Freedom Park fits the... More

This is a beautiful park featured in the movie "Shallow Hal". They have an ampitheatre and a huge lake with running/walking trail. Playground for the kids, baseball diamonds etc. Premier park in Charlotte. Annually, "Festival in the Park" is hosted at this location in the historic area of Charlotte.

If you are in CLT, take a moment to see Freedon Park, it's not that big but nice walk around the lake and a very cure brick bridge on the way.

This dog friendly park has a walking path that runs around it and also along the Pigeon Forge River. It is a wide open space for use of community fireworks at the 4th of July and they also have craft shows here. There are large lighted patriotic signage which can be seen at night. It is a good open space... More
