“Very nice park to spend an afternoon”
Reviewed November 9, 2012

The park is located pretty much next to the famous neighborhood of Queens Road West and is really nice and calm. There is a pond, an outdoor theater, a bike station and many benches to relax. It's perfect to spend some quiet minutes in the nature and it is really nice and quiet. Definitely worth a visit!

“soothing respite”
Reviewed November 5, 2012

This is a lovely park that throws green space at you in the middle of the city. Charlotte has a lot of dedicated green space which really helps to ensure that the urban sprawl that other cities suffer from is not an issue here.

“Fun playground -- very expansive”
Reviewed November 5, 2012

Some paved trails were nice + liked the swings/playground. Natural museum was very close and assessable. We did a few geo caching in the area as well. Very relaxed environment and while we did not do so, it appeared that it was bike friendly. We went on a Saturday and it seemed very safe.

“Beautiful Day in a Beautiful Park”
Reviewed October 31, 2012

What a great park!! It was suggeested to us for a quick something to do on an afternoon. We spent more time than expected. Great playground. Interesting brook. Nice pond to walk around on a sidewalk. Comfortable gravel trails for short hike. Don't miss the nature center. The nature center is for preschool through elementary age children. There were many hands-on exhibits and easily takes 1 - 2 hours. Admission charge was worth it but be prepared to pay. The location is not clearly marked but you will find it if looking for it. Just a short walk over a bridge on the end of the pond away from the playground. Have fun! I will return to this park next time I visit Charlotte.

“Beautiful Park in the center of city”
Reviewed October 29, 2012

This is a must see if visiting the city. Freedom Park is a great spot to begin a ride using the Charlotte Cycle share program. The bikeways leads almost to the city center, which can be reached via a few city roads. Great spot to run or just enjoy the outdoors.
