  • This park is a great place to hang out with friends & family alike, with water features and other things for kids to play with, and lots of open space to run around. Also a beautiful view of uptown if youre looking for a good spot for pictures, or just to people watch & stare at the skyline.
  • City of Charlotte has been working to get parks and open spaces uptown for the last few years. Romare Bearden Park is a great example of what they are aiming for in each of the four wards of uptown. First Ward Park is open as well. Cannot wait for the trees to create a great canopy to match the rest of Charlotte's "Urban Jungle"
  • Wonderful city green space! Love that they have now opened a similar park in First Ward. But Romare is fantastic, live music, art events, etc. throughout the summer. But also just a fun place to relax, have lunch or people watch, any time of the year. Great for families too!
  • Super nice park in the heart of downtown. Kids play in the water and there are some cool interactive items set up. There is no designated parking because it's downtown. Observe the lights around the park. Beautiful
  • I love this park, it's beautiful and always clean and has stunning views of the city. The fountains are amazing.
