Saturday Snapshot - Part 4 The Green



West Metro Mommy Reads

Saturday Snapshots is hosted by West Metro Mommy

April 2014 - Charlotte NC



Part 1 I posted that I had enjoyed The Green so much that I would be back with more 

This will be my final post on The Green in Charlotte NC.I loved this park with its literature theme.

Camouflaged speakers emit the sounds of bees buzzing, these stamped iron tiles are inlaid throughout the brick walkways.














There are  poems engraved on large brass sheets, made to look like manuscript pages, just lying precariously around The Green.

  2. The tiles made to look like cushions or throw blankets are pretty amazing. I'm going to check my route to see if I can stop by this park on my trip south next week. Here's Mine

  6. What a great park. Thanks for featuring it. I have never been to North Carolina, but if I ever get the chance I will definitely make time to visit The Green.
