Very small water park at corner of Tryon and Trade. While very small, it is very nicely done and a great spot for a quick reprieve from the day with the sound of running water. Surprisingly peaceful feel given it is located by a major intersection in downtown.
I have loved this place for years. It's a water fall park in the center of a big city. Great place for taking photos. This is a great starting place for the Charlotte History Walk (free, just walk up and down Tryon)
Such an amazing place for a photoshoot! Last week I had a wedding around the corner from here at the Ritz Carlton and we did the bride and groom's first look at the park and the pictures turned out amazing.
Really cool area to visit and rest for a few minutes. Lots of seating and good views of the water feature. Cool but slippery place for kids to play around the fountain and pools with lots of plants and color. Nice secluded area in an otherwise busy intersection.
Thomas Polk Park This part is Lush and very peaceful. A perfect little getaway in the center of the city. This is a perfect spot to take pictures, and the words etched into the marble surrounding the waterfall give insight to who Thomas Polk was and the historical value of Charlotte as it relates to the rest of the country.
