Myers Park

Quite possibly the most well known neighborhood in Charlotte. It is located just south of Uptown and the original city limits. Dilworth and Freedom Park border it to the west; Uptown and Midtown to the northeast; Eastover to the east; and SouthPark to the south.

Myers Park was dreamt up by J.S. Myers to be a fashionable elegant suburb; laid out and designed by the renowned John Nolen; and developed by Myers’ son-in-law George Stevens. It was a huge success in the early 1900’s and remains so today as a great place to live and invest in real estate. It was the third “streetcar suburb,” has many historic homes, and does have a small section, Hermitage Court, that is designated and protected as a Local Historic District.

The neighborhood is primarily residential and has a park-like feel throughout; Myers Park has many defining features and things it is known for such as “the Gold Man” statue at “the big confusing intersection” of Queens / Queens / Providence / Providence, the “Booty Loop,” Freedom Park, and in recent times the Sugar Creek Greenway revitalization connecting it to Uptown by foot or bike.
