Well-known for its 100-year old Tree
Myers Park is a neighborhood in Charlotte City, North Carolina, surrounded by Dilworth and Sedgefield to the west, Eastover neighborhood to the east, Charlotte city center to the north and South Park and Foxcroft neighborhoods to the south. The original boundaries of the blocks coincided with the ones of the John Spring Myers farm, spread over 1220 acres. However, in 2008, the neighborhood was already spreading over 2200 acres and had a population of 9809 residents.
The neighborhood is well-known for its amazing 100-year old tree, as well as for the picturesque streets boasting mansions built in Colonial and Tudor Revival styles, which give the entire area an elegant, timeless charm and glamour. The magnificent tree perfectly complements this chic area and all the beautiful gardens of the mansions. However, nothing in the neighborhood is here by accident – every detail was carefully thought out by John Spring Myers, who back in the 1950s wanted to turn the cotton farmland into Charlotte’s first suburb. Myers managed to transform his vision into reality and developed this residential area, perfect for students, families, and young couples.
