Third Ward Neighborhood
Third Ward is home to the ballpark neighborhood, where new apartment towers surround Romare Bearden Park and BB&T Ballpark. It is also home to the Carolina Panthers, who play at Bank of America stadium and practice at an adjacent facility. Spring and summer nights are filled with baseball and fireworks, and in the fall neighborhood bars and nearby parking lots fill with Panthers fans. The west edge of the neighborhood is a mix of historic bungalows and contemporary condos and townhomes surrounding the dog park, recreational fields and greenway at Frazier Park. Bank of America’s 1.5 million square foot complex Gateway Village has retail, hospitality, and the Charlotte campus of Johnson & Wales University.
