Hats Off to Parks is an annual “Party In The Park” event co-hosted by Partners for Parks and the Mecklenburg County Park and Recreation Department. Attendees don their best hats and raise money for special park projects that could not be completed otherwise. The annual event features great food, entertainment and a silent auction which is the premier event for friends and supporters of Parks.


Open Streets 704

Open Streets 704 is a series of four Charlotte events made possible by a grant from the Knight Foundation. Open Streets 704 opens a length of city streets for an afternoon just for people! Taking cues from similar events around the country and the world, Open Streets 704 aims to build a better, healthier, connected community by encouraging Charlotte and Mecklenburg area residents to walk, bicycle, and experience the city together in a way that’s just not possible in a car.

Open Streets 704 is made possible in partnership with Partners for Parks, Mecklenburg County Government, the City of Charlotte, Mecklenburg County Park & Recreation, the Mecklenburg County Health Department, and the support of The Charlotte-Mecklenburg Police and Charlotte Fire departments. Partners intend to use the four events to assess whether an ongoing Open Streets program makes sense for the community. More info at openstreets704.com
