A lot of weird people hanging out in the park after dusk. Not good environment for kids. Saturday during the day is better except for some of the teenage groups which tend to be obnoxious.

This place is an oasis. One of my favorite places to walk, reflect, and relax. In my opinion, it is a family-friendly gem in one of the most beautiful cities in America.

I would suggest if you go on a nice sunny day, to go in the early part of the afternoon. It can get a little crowded sometimes. Its a great park for picnics and walking.

Great paths for walking or jogging. Links to greenway for longer distance. Tennis courts, basketball, baseball, soccer etc. Always lots of people around so feel very safe enjoying this great space

Freedom Park has definitely grown since the 5 years I've been there. There were several families there enjoying the gorgeous weekend. There were recreational sport games going on, children playing, dogs being walked, people sunning and riding bikes, and so much more activity. We were there to walk around the park, read the plaques dedicated to our military branches and... More

Well landscaped grounds, with a lakeside theater as a focal point . There are miles of nature trails to explore , or just hang out and enjoy the scenery . Bicycles are for rent at a modest fee. Huge playground , and athletic fields.

We had a few hours to spare on a beautiful afternoon while visiting Charlotte. We decided to try Freedom Park and it was a great choice. We must have lucked out on parking, because we didn't have any trouble. It was pretty busy, but the park did not feel crowded. It is really beautiful, expansive, and easy to get around... More

Great spot to post up for a picnic and enjoy the weather. Can get very, very crowded and parking can be a hassle. Area is large enough so you don't feel cramped. Area near the pond is where it is at. Many things to do for all ages, from jungle-gyms to a stage.
