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.
