One of the best parks in Charlotte hands down, and located in the beautiful neighborhood of Dilworth. Go for a stroll around the fountain and pond area, rent a bike from the bike share station, or run on the greenway trail up to the Met and back in Uptown. It's a great place to unwind and relax in a green... More

This is my favorite park to attend in Charlotte. They have movie nights in the park, symphonies, and a place to walk with a dog in a family-friendly environment.

Great park in a nice location of town. I have been there several times for running, relaxing and other events. Great for kids, bike rides on the greenway or a run with friends. Very clean. I have seen a wedding there too.

This park is beautiful. If you're active it's perfect for a walk. run or bike (You can rent a bike in the park). If you're looking for mellow, grab a book and drive on over - plenty of parking.

Great place to pass the day in a beautiful environment. Great for running, walking or biking. Even had time to throw down a blanket and enjoy the people watching.

We went to Freedom Park for an arts show and enjoyed the afternoon. Parking is difficult if there is an event and you need to plan on walking a few blocks to get to the park. After you arrive, you still have a bit of a walk to arrive at the activities. There is a train engine for children to... More

some travelers have compared to Central Park. I don't think I would go that far, but it is a nice place to have lunch, walk, or bike. Kids can play on the standard playground or on a football training play area. Kids enjoyed the stop to have lunch and take a break from the car. Lots of birds.

Got a little tired of traffic and stopped here to walk a bit and unwind. It is a nice park but I think it is stretching it to compare with Central Park or any Olmstead Park. It is the largest park in Charlotte which is kind of sad that the 15th largest city should be so devoid of a quality... More
