In recognition of National Park and Recreation Month, the department invites you to discover all the ways you can stay active this summer. Check out the Get Going Guide for great ideas and be sure to visit one of Mecklenburg County's great parks or recreation facilities:
Romare Bearden Park
Join Mecklenburg County Park and Recreation in celebrating the much anticipated grand opening of Romare Bearden Park, located on South Church Street in uptown Charlotte. The festivities begin Friday, August 30 and will continue throughout the Labor Day Weekend, just in time for what would be the internationally known artists' 102nd birthday. This birthday bash will feature various genres of art, music, dance and activities for all ages. The celebration will serve as a preview for the types of events the park will host year-round.
