Saturday in the Park, Freedom Park that is….
New York’s Not the Only City with a “Central Park…” Charlotte’s Got One Too, we call it Freedom Park!
Located in the heart of Charlotte’s Dilworth neighborhood, Freedom Park is our very own “Central Park.”
Known as the “Central Park” of Charlotte and covering 98 acres of lush gardens, paths, playgrounds, tennis courts, baseball field and a wonderful 7-acre lake, this urban oasis is only 3 miles from Uptown Charlotte. Freedom park is bordered by the upscale neighborhoods of Myers Park on one side, and historic, pedestrian-friendly Dilworth on the other. Biking and walking paths along the Little Sugar Creek Greenway connect to the new Metropolitan Center Park and Shopping district nearby.
So when you have a Saturday afternoon and some time on your hands, this is the perfect place to spend it – either solo reading a book beneath the majestic oak trees, or with friends biking, hiking, and playing tennis. Complete the afternoon and walk up East Blvd to one the popular restaurants for lunch or a little shopping, then head back to enjoy your evening in the park listening to music or watching a film in the amphitheater. September features a 5-day long Festival in the Park which is is billed as one of the top 20 events in the South.
Freedom Park is especially enjoyed by many of the residents that surround it. Homes in the Myers Park neighborhood sell at an average price of $795,000. Statistics for this neighborhood can be found at http://shonnross.localhomesearch.net/na/Myers+Park,5.html?_fs=1.
In the historic bungalow-lined streets of Dilworth, the average selling price is $547,000. You’ll find those stats at http://shonnross.localhomesearch.net/na/Dilworth,5.html?_fs=1. Obviously, these are fairly affluent areas offering desired schools and convenience to many other poplar areas of Charlotte.
A great example of a home that is currently available in the Dilworth neighborhood and just a couple blocks to Freedom Park and to poplar East Blvd., is 1512 Ideal Way. This home is located just off of Cumberland Ave, which borders Freedom Park. Charmingly cute and renovated, it offers lots of character, interesting flex space and amazing outdoor living opportunities, you can take a peek and get more info at http://www.tourfactory.com/1011159, and offered at only $375,000, it is wonderful value and an opportunity to live along Freedom Park.
Soak in the possibilities of a day… or evening at the park… knowing just how perfect it could be to live near Charlotte’s Freedom Park!
