Freedom Park is just splendid. I grew up going to this park every week, at least once. It is so peaceful and well maintained. It has so many attractions for children of all ages. The Nature Museum has raised every child in Charlotte at one time. It is so unique and still brings sparkles to the eyes of so many... More

The park is such a wonderful environment within which to get some exercise. We've walked it many times, including volunteering there to help with the maintenance work, so it was nice to cycle around for a change.

This is a great family place. Lots of dogs and playgrounds. Great place to take a walk or run around a small lake. Lots of festivals here also....

As a local this park is my favorite. It has walking trails around the lake and connects to a greenway that will take you miles. There is a lake. Plus for kids there are 3 playgrounds. Also, in a safe location.

There is absolutely nothing special about this huge waste of space. All this space and they can't have the city pay to build some more playgrounds or attractions. I wasted my leg power walking around this empty crap whole called freedom park.

What a great park. The lake, the amphitheater, the grill stations...most important: lots of nice and happy people of all walks of life. Great as a photographic background with all the bridges, seating areas and trees and bushes. Bring the whole family and enjoy the park. Come early to get your parking spot.

It's one of my favorite parks to walk. There's always lots of people around and it's close to uptown, The greenway goes right by here.

Gorgeous gem in the middle of the city of Charlotte. There is an amphitheater to enjoy music in the summer with room on the lawn to bring a blanket and cheese platter. There are athletic fields and fountains. A gorgeous place to go for a stroll.

Great park. Conveniently located. I love to walk around the lake. Easy on street parking if you arrive early in the morning on weekends.
