Widely considered to be the most affluent and reputable neighborhood in the city of Charlotte, Myers Park boasts an area of fine homes, tree-lined streets, and curving drives. Bounded by Queens Road to the north, Providence Road to the east, Sharon Road to the south, and Park Road to the west, Myers Park residents attend Charlotte-Mecklenburg Schools, including Myers Park High School, Alexander Graham Middle School, Myers Park Traditional Elementary School, and Selwyn Elementary School.
Myers Park is of statewide significance because it was the home of many of the textile, banking, and utility leaders responsible for developing the Piedmont Carolinas into a major American manufacturing region in the early twentieth century.
New developments such as Latta Pavilion – named after Dilworth’s original entertainment center – offer condominiums, office and retail space, landscaped courtyards and walkways. You also will find the city’s only Greek Orthodox Cathedral, which draws thousands to its annual Yiasou Greek Festival in September. At the other end of the boulevard is the entrance to Freedom Park, well known for its annual arts festival, athletic fields, walking paths and amphitheater. Some other major highlights of the area include Theatre Charlotte (Charlotte’s oldest arts organization and the state’s longest running community theatre), Duke Mansion, and Edgehill Park.
