Went here on a whim, and we loved it! It is very clean and they have a lot of grass area to sit for picnic and relaxing. If you want to ride bike they also have a bike rental machine.

On a bright sunny day we took the #6 bus to the entrance of the Park. The grounds are very well cared for. There's a little pond. A bike share station. A band shell for performances. A great jungle gym play area with a decommissioned steam engine as part of the play area. We walked around the pond and then... More

I had a friend come to Charlotte and was showing them around. We stopped at Freedom Park on a really nice afternoon. It's a great place to people watch. The facilities are clean as well as the grounds. The greenway into the city is amazing. You can rent bikes if you like. There are plenty of things to do for... More

This park was really nice. We went because it was listed under botanical gardens. It would probably be considered that when the temperature is warmer. The trail was great for our stroll.

Strolling around the lake is the best remedy for a stressful day! There are always folks from the neighborhood walking their dogs, playing with the kids on the ball fields, just relaxing in the wide expanses of grassy areas. LOVE THIS PARK!

I've long been a fan of Charlotte's parks and recreation focus. Freedom Park is a chief example of metropolitan integration of city life and life outdoors. Many people come on their lunch break just to watch the ducks, or relax by the stream. I love to go in the afternoon or early evening--on a day off, or when my work... More

I live nearby and use Freedom Park frequently for walking, biking, picnicing, enoing.... It is nice to see so many people also using the park. The shelters and bathrooms were recently renovated and the children's play area is "to die for" with lots of bright blue plastic slides, climbing walls, swings, monkey rings....

Wonderfully landscaped and expansive park that has something for everyone. The massive state-of-the-art jungle gym was a big hit with my 4 year old, as was the full-size railroad steam engine parked next to it. Other attractions for older kids and adults included a wide range of swing sets, ball courts, a beautiful lake and stream with plenty of shade,... More
