  • This park reminds me of Central Park of New York City. Has a lot of good trails for people of all ages to explore and is pet friendly. 
  • I was there during last week of August 2016 - on my recent trip to NC -Charlotte. The serenity of this place is quite amazing and refreshing to the mind & soul alike. 
  • This is a lovely park to go for a walk or run or to just hang out with your family. Very relaxing atmosphere in the park with a lot of activities to do.

  • “AWESOME, BEAUTIFUL PARK...ONE of CHARLOTTE'S JEWELS!!!” Wow, what a BEAUTIFUL Park!!! Following my various travel apps recommendations, I made a visit. I was glad I did. The paved pathway around the spacious Lake and Green-space. Makes a great place to walk around, picnic, get some exercise, and enjoy a beautiful day. Many amenities available. Freedom Park will stick out as one of my memorable visits in the Charlotte area. I highly recommend you make a visit.
  • One of the best parks in the Queen City. Great walking/running paths, amazing play ground and the Carolina Panthers Park is pretty awesome! It's also dog friendly and they have a food truck too! My girls love coming to play at this park.
  • This park has great playground for kids, but it is never too crowded. There is also volleyball area with sand. Nice surrounding. The only thing they could add is splashing zone. Actually this is my favorite park in Charlotte at this moment! I also like the greenway that is connected with the park.
  • Great park for activities. Large paved walking path runs around the duck pond. Decent parking. Plenty of shade trees, trash drops and drinking fountains. Very well kept overall. Seems to be fishing available as well.
  • Lovely park with lots of joggers, walkers and bikers. It's connected to the Charlotte Greenway so it can be easily found and is very lovely! There are also soccer, baseball and volleyball courts on site.
