Looking for a place to play outside? Here are a few parks we love!
Village Park in Kannapolis has an antique carousel and a small train in addition to their fun playground. With picnic spots, restrooms on site, and paved walking trails, you can spend the whole day here.
Kevin Loftin Riverfront Park in Belmont, NC is a great spot to enjoy spring by the river. There’s a newly constructed playground on site, plus picnic areas, picnic shelters, and restrooms. Perhaps the coolest part of this park is the beautiful dock with bench swings that extend out into the river. Have your own kayak? You can launch for free from this park!
Go for a Hike
We LOVE heading out on a hike to see a gorgeous waterfall. It’s really one of the best ways to enjoy spring weather that we can think of. If you agree, try one of these Waterfalls near Charlotte. For something really unique, head to Western North Carolina and try this Waterfall Driving Tour.
