Freedom Park is an urban public park just to the South of Uptown Charlotte. It was created as a tribute to the Americans who fought in World War II.
As part of my recovery program, we started the day by making a lap around the soccer field at the local YMCA. Afternoon temperatures are now tolerable.
Having survived that test, we decided to visit Freedom Park. In 1976, President Gerald Ford visited Charlotte and gave a speech at Freedom Park. It was partly part of the Bicentennial celebration and partly a campaign opportunity for his failed reelection campaign.
