First Ward Park Breaks Ground

After years of delay, First Ground Park broke ground on September 18th.  The park is a joint venture of Levine Properties and Mecklenburg County and is the first step in a planned mixed-use development by Levine Properties. The ground breaking was attended Chair of the Board of County Commissioners Trevor Fuller, Mecklenburg County Manager Dena Diorio, and Mayor Pro Tem Michael Barnes.  There was also a presentation by students from First Ward Creative Arts Academy on the importance of parks. Once completed, the 3.2-acre park, located between ImaginOn and UNC Charlotte’s center city building, will feature a great lawn and interactive fountain.  ColeJenest & Stone is providing civil engineering, landscape architectural and master planning services for this project.
