Marshall park is small, and outside of the big fountain in the pond, there's little to see. You can come and feed the ducks and enjoy a moment of peace within the confines of the big city, but really that's about it.

This small downtown park was ill-conceived and has never been popular as a random hangout. It will soon be eliminated and (including adjacent areas) replaced with a mixed use office, shopping, and residential development.

If you want to take a nice picture to a view of the city go to this park. You have to walk maybe 5 blocks from the wells fargo museum. The park has a fountain in the center with a lot of ducks and a little bridge.You can spend a quiet time there and take a lot of beautiful pictures.... More

While there are some trees and grass the centrepiece to Marshall Park is the fountain and the surround to this is a big empty concrete apron - unfortunately that was the lasting memory for me. You never escape the noise of the traffic and hustle of the city and don't really lose sight of either too. Oh and on the... More

There is space for walking, relaxing and people watching. it is a good place to sit and enjoy lunch when the weather is nice, especially if you work in one of the government buildings. A statue of Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr., sculpted by Selma Burke is located in this park.

An older park in the middle of the city...but nice nonetheless. Great spot for a magnificent view of Uptown Charlotte. Peaceful spot in the city and not far from Freedom Park and the Greenway.

We are lucky in Charlotte to have several parks where people can go and enjoy a bit of serenity during their busy day. Marshall Park is one of those places. It is 5 or 6 acres, with a small lake, with a bridge and a walking path, two memorial statures, one of MLK and one of the holocaust, and a... More

Surrounded by government buildings and a baptist church, this peaceful city park is a nice retreat from city life. Not very large. A little outdated. A few homeless people sleeping. Great views of Charlotte's skyscrapers. Short walk from College Street entertainment.

It was just around the corner from my hotel. It was a peaceful setting but the local Government buildings. There is a statue of MJK.

located near the center city. A nice little city park with a fountain, two bridges and a concrete plaza. A statue of Martin Luther King that was not a very good likeness of King, but since the park borders Martin Luther King Boulevard it seems appropriate. I liked Freedom Park much better. I can't say that I would mark it... More
