Welcome to Myers Park
Myers Park is a well-established neighborhood south of downtown Charlotte. Magnificent houses are to be found within the tree-lined streets of Myers Park as this neighborhood was home to the old money families in the Charlotte area since the late 1800s. Arguably the most beautiful neighborhood in Charlotte, Myers Park was designed to be a “garden suburb” and the streets follow the landscape's natural curving lines.
