Queen City’s First Public Park

On Thursday, February 7, we are kicking off our first public meeting for Charlotte’s Independence Park, the city’s first public park designed by John Nolen in 1906. This will be an opportunity for us to share what we’ve learned about this historic park, its legacy and some of the challenges and opportunities in the park’s landscape today. More importantly, it will be an opportunity for the Charlotte community to share with us what aspects of the park meet their needs today and what might benefit from further investment. We hope to see you there!

This effort is the product of a collaboration with our project partners Bartlett Tree Experts, Bloc Engineering, The Cultural Landscape Foundation, History South, Land Design, Perkins + Will, and Revington Reeves under the guidance of Mecklenberg County Parks.  Learn more on our project page!
