  • Nicely maintained park with facilities for kids and a couple of performance stages right in the middle of uptown, next to BB&T ballpark. They have regular free music events, with beer tents and food trucks. There is also a wide variety of restaurants and bars within easy walking distance. It's so nice that at least this time Charlotte didn't tear something nice down and replace it with a high-rise.
  • This is definitely one of the nicest parks in the whole city. It's maintained EXTREMELY well and can be enjoyed by kids and adults alike. If you're coming here, definitely consider coming during the sunset.
  • Nice big open space with lovely new buildings and apartments surrounding you. Besides that, if you ever notice on weekdays after 5pm... Many neighbors/residences take their dogs for a walk and use the park as a place for urinating and dog droppings. Most dog matters are picked up, but come on... Kids are running around there. People are sitting on the lawns. Once you realize this is happening, it doesn't seem as appealing any more. Dedicate dog park might be a consideration?
  • The views are awesome at night when I went. I'm familiar with the fountain even tho it's turned off this time of year - it's a great place to take kids - I was also told some of the pillars have manual 'water guns' and others have musical notes to encourage a group of kids (or adults) to synch. Really clean especially for being in the heart of downtown and surrounded by a great selection of restaurants.
  • Fun place to hang out with your friends and family. Great place for kids to run around. Cool concert area.
