Hello,
I hear a lot of references to the different neighborhoods/areas within Charlotte (Elizabeth, Dilworth, South Park, Steele Creek, etc.) And while I have a vague idea of where each of these places are on the map, I was wondering if there was a good website I could go to that showed me the boundaries of each of the neighborhoods, or if some helpful Charlottean wouldn't mind putting together a post describing them? I'll be visiting Charlotte in a couple weeks, and I'd like to have as much information as I can before then. Thanks!

Hi,

This has some information defining/mapping the neighborhoods.

See 2006 quality of life study.

(Elizabeth, Dilworth, South Park, Steele Creek, etc.)

I'll try to give you some rough boundaries. Some of the lines are fuzzy, so this is just a general idea.

Elizabeth = Just SE of uptown. Boundaries: N - Kings, W - Randolph, S - 5th & 7th, E - Independence. It revolves around 7th Street, which becomes Monroe.

Dilworth = just SSW of uptown- N - uptown /Caldwell, W - East Blvd, S - Ideal Way, E - Morehead/Queens.

SouthPark = the area around SouthPark Mall which is at the intersection of Sharon Rd. and Fairview. N - Wendover, W - Park Road, S - Smithfield Church, E - Providence

Myers Park = the grand old area just S of uptown. N - uptown, W - Morehead/Queens, S - Wendover, E - Randolph.

Cotswold = SSE of uptown. N - Wendover, W - Randolph, S - Rama, E - Monroe

Steele Creek = South of the airport. N - Shopton , W - Shopton, S - Tryon, E - I485/Tryon

NoDa = the funky area NE of uptown around 36th and Davidson. I don't know boundaries up there.

Plaza Midwood = Just SE of uptown, E of Elizabeth. N - Pecan, W - Central, S - Morningside, E - Mecklenburg Ave.

Ballantyne = Southern edge of Charlotte city. N - I485, W - Lancaster Highway, S - Ardrey Kell, E - Rea Road

Anyone know what you call the area south of the SouthPark area down to Pineville - around the Park Road corridor? I struggled there. Quail Hollow is part of it, but that's not all encompassing.

Phew, that taxed my brain. I'm sure others can provide some other neighborhoods you may see referenced on the board. Maybe someone could define what's currently considered Waxhaw, Marvin and Wesley Chapel, since the real world definitions aren't exactly the same as the map depicts. I'd be interested to see that since I know more and more people who live down there and I don't know the area well.

Default neighborhood map boundaries

What about the Maponics neighborhood boundary maps at Maponics Online Store: Neighborhood Maps

That area you aren't sure of IS south Charlotte; Park Road all the way down to Park Rd Extension. At Park Rd Ext it becomes Pineville. Good job on your info
