1st Ward Park, the newest park in Uptown Charlotte; offers grass, fountain, art, play ground equipment, and a room to walk your dog.
We especially enjoy the Children’s library next to the park.
Fountain and crown in the First Ward Park. This park is next to UNC Charlotte Center building.
The crown design follows the Charlotte crown city theme.
I like the shadows and the bird 😉

UNC Charlotte has large campus North East of uptown however they also maintain a unique presence in Uptown.
Interestingly the uniqueness is not just the offset floors … notice the windows.
This photo was taken at 320 East North Street. Following is an article about the UNC Charlotte Center City
It was exciting and a little embarrassing to discover a new building in Uptown Charlotte. This building is located three blocks from where we live and was constructed in the last year.
Seriously I must be working too hard.

This is the view from our balcony in Uptown Charlotte. No green grass on this side of our condo complex. However, the view does have an appeal.
Three Wells Fargo Center is located at 401 South Tryon.
We are looking forward to riding the “red line” extension which just opened after 10 years of planning and construction.
This photo was taken at the 3rd street Convention station. Following is a link to the Lynx, Charlotte’s light rail system.
Today’s photo shows the BB&T parking garage. One can get dizzy finding your floor.
Interestingly the garage exit is like an expressway off ramp.
This photo was taken at 200 South College.
The Charlotte Plaza stands out against blue sky. I especially like the cloud reflection which blends nicely with the cloud behind the building.
The building is being remodeled at present although you cannot see that in this photo.
The Charlotte Plaza is found at 201 South College.
The recently opened Kimpton Tryon Park Hotel has a roof top bar which we have attempted to visit twice. However it is closed on Sundays and that is the day we keep trying. Maybe the front desk will let management know there is an opportunity on Sunday because they are having to turn people away 😉
The Kimpton Tryon Park Hotel overlooks Romare Bearden Park.
On Saint Patrick’s day there were lines of people in green. This photo shows a line of hungry people at the Halal Food Cart.
There were also lines, at the entrance of every bar. Thirsty people in green 😉
This photo was taken at the intersection of Trade and Tryon.
