Activity for a Thursday included a Baby story time at the Library (worth a whole other separate post).
Some Thursdays this activity is just not enough for myself and lady Olivia (I am calling her all kinds of nicknames lately and as they say the more nicknames the more adored they are – term of endearments, plus she has been copying me in the morning getting ready for the day – pretending to spray perfume, to accessorize, to cream the old dishwashing hand – too cute!), so driving around the streets of Charlotte trying to think of something to do, I pass an old board stating Freedom Park. Naturally I followed this board as I have been there before and I know what to expect – greener pastures.
The trees are now all in full green attire and the flowers in bloom. You can actually smell summer.
People are walking their dogs, running and cycling everywhere. Under the trees you find moms and tots picnicking, noses tucked away behind books, hammocks suspended between trees a hundred years old, this is the life! For background noises you have geese and ducks and not too far off, children on the playground.
You can’t help but have that vacation feeling whilst walking along the path around the beautiful lake.
Everywhere you look is postcard pretty.
You can also reserve areas for that summer birthday party or that end of school year get together. The Charlotte Nature Museum also has an entrance from the park’s side. The Park offers so much: Baseball fields, Tennis courts, playgrounds, soccer fields, bicycles for rent, a running track, a Bandshell (starting end of June 16, there will be Jazz Shows in the Bandshell) – there’s something for everyone.
I definitely recommend this outing whether its a Thursday after the library, daily for some exercise or a Sunday stroll after lunch – for all occasions for the whole family.
Tip: Remember your sunscreen!
