Overview

The park is rich with detailing and custom elements that include prominent entry monument signage, overhead structures to help create a pedestrian feel throughout the space, seat walls for informal seating, and plantings throughout to provide a semi-continuous tree canopy.

The 425-foot-long 3rd Street Linear Park in Uptown Charlotte connects South Tryon Street to Romare Bearden Park. It enhances the city's core, fostering a strong physical and visual connection. Bolton & Menk facilitated collaborative workshops to involve public and private entities in the park's design process. The park features detailed elements such as entry monument signage, overhead structures for a pedestrian atmosphere, seat walls for informal seating, and tree plantings that create a semi-continuous canopy. It also includes outdoor dining for a nearby restaurant and a coffee shop with a walk-up window, promoting a seamless connection between indoor and outdoor spaces. Safety and accessibility for pedestrians were prioritized, with landscape, hardscape, and street furniture thoughtfully incorporated to guide and limit pedestrian movements across Third Street. This park is part of the acclaimed 300 South Tryon Development.
