After nearly a decade of planning and a year of construction, First Ward Park, 301 E. Seventh St., opened on Tuesday, Dec. 8 with a dedication ceremony and family-friendly activities.
The event featured music by local school children, park tours and samplings from the merchants at the 7th Street Public Market and Brixx Wood Fired Pizza.
The 4.5-acre park, located between ImaginOn and the UNC Charlotte Center City campus, was constructed through a partnership between Mecklenburg County, the City of Charlotte and Levine Properties.
An official grand opening celebration will take place next April.
