1st Ward Park

1st Ward Park, the newest park in Uptown Charlotte; offers grass, fountain, art, play ground equipment, and a room to walk your dog.

We especially enjoy the Children’s library next to the park.

On the weekends, we enjoy walking on the Little Sugar Creek Greenway and we especially enjoy the trees. This tree is found at the entrance to Freedom Park. As you can see it was back lit by the evening sun.

Following are links to post of trees we have shared in the past.

Continuing a transportation theme, we are sharing this photo of the train at Freedom Park near Uptown Charlotte. We enjoy watching children play on this train when we visit the park. Our grandson plays on it regularly. A plaque says the train was built in 1920 and when retied was one of the last steam locomotives in regular service.
