Freedom Park

A couple of minutes’ drive from uptown Charlotte lies Freedom Park, a lush park with a seven-acre lake at its center. The park offers many sight-seeing and recreational opportunities, from paved trails to tennis courts and athletic fields, complete with playground equipment. There’s so much to do here.

One of the key attractions is an old steam engine that’s enclosed by a fence. In the past, the train was open to children—they could get under it and jump on top. Beside it, there were two fire engines with classic handle crack right in front. Both were also open to young explorers who could learn and play.

Throughout summer, musical performances and free films abound in the park’s pavilion. The park also hosts a five-day festival in September, which attracts thousands of visitors and revelers. It is so popular that the Southeast Tourism Society recognizes it as a Top 20 Event.

Next to the Freedom Park is a natural museum, where you and the children can learn and have fun. Plants and animals are on display, and when you tire of exploring its trails and paths, you can go to the new outdoor shelters with grills and relax. Restrooms are clean, and the facility is air-conditioned.

Are you looking for fishing opportunities? Bring your fishing rod. From the lake, you can channel catfish, bluegill, and the largemouth bass.

It is an excellent place for bank fishing with your little ones. When they get bored, dock at the shores and take them to the playground for more leisure time.

Whether you come to Freedom Park to play sports or reconnect with nature, there are 98 air-conditioned acres of tranquil space for you to explore and enjoy.

Take the NC-49 S from Well Doctor LLC for about 36.9 miles, and you’ll arrive at Freedom Park within 45 minutes.
