Lake Park, a village in northwest Union County, is 15 miles from downtown Charlotte, North Carolina. Villagers have built a variety of homes here: traditional single-family homes, care-free patio homes, condominiums, and townhomes.
Lake Park’s landmark, a chiming clocktower, overlooks this beautiful village with churches, schools, shops, offices, and a community center. Three parks, 2 swimming pools, a wading pool, a “feature pool”, 2 tennis courts, 6 playgrounds, and 13 ponds provide plentiful recreation and entertainment. Unique monuments and gazebos identify the neighborhoods. Pathways and tree-lined sidewalks connect them all, inviting residents and guests to enjoy the outdoors and each other.
Come see all that Lake Park has to offer and why it is much more than a neighborhood – it’s a home town.
