Since we have a Charlotte Greenways thread, I figured we should dedicate a thread to parks in general.
So, in 2nd Ward topic @kermit brought up the ParkScore by the Trust for Public Land: http://parkscore.tpl.org/city.php?city=Charlotte
I initially replied there, but this subject should be discussed in depth - and I could not find a thread that was dedicated to Parks overall (not just greenways). In my reply I compare it to Seattle - http://parkscore.tpl.org/city.php?city=Seattle
The CharMeck Parks and Recreation website has details on all existing parks: https://www.mecknc.gov/ParkandRec/Parks/Pages/default.aspx
I was on a bike ride the other day attempting to make the Buttermilk East > Flood Wall connection and was happy to see the path was diverted because work on the Browns Island Dam Walk has begun. You can see the work from the north side of the river quite clearly I now notice. I'll take some pictures when the rain lets up. I'm excited about this project.
Here's a link to the just-released iQuilt Plan in the form of a "Pocket Guide": http://iq2.squarespa...0Jan%202012.pdf
The full 120-page Overview is supposed to be online on January 24.
There has been a lot of news coverage of the iQuilt recently:
The Plan is also relevant to other Urban Planet discussions on downtown Hartford, including proposed renovations of the XL Center, and the State of Connecticut possibly relocating many of its office into downtown commercial space, and freeing up its holdings, especially around Bushnell Park, for housing.
