Olde Providence is one of the best neighborhoods in Charlotte, known for its large yards with mature trees and convenient location. The perfect place to raise a family, while still being incredibly close to all the amenities south Charlotte has to offer. Just three miles from desirable Southpark and only nine miles to uptown Charlotte, Olde Providence is conveniently located to shopping centers, coffee shops, and many business parks of the city. I may be a tad biased, but after raising my three children here in the “OP” (as Olde Providence is lovingly called), I cannot think of a better neighborhood to raise a family while still being near the pulse of the city.
Those looking for a variety of recreational activities will be pleasantly surprised to know that the distinguished Olde Providence Racquet Club is located just north of the community. Tennis courts, swimming pools, and a beautiful club house can also be found inside the neighborhood country club, Windyrush.
Nearby parks such as James Boyce Park and Carmel Road Neighborhood Park provide ample walking trails and recreational facilities for children and adults. In fact, the Olde Providence community benefits from its convenient location to Symphony Park at South Park where every June the Charlotte Symphony Orchestra Summer Pops concert series takes place.
Not only is the location attractive, but the Olde Providence neighborhood also includes Olde Providence Elementary, which is walking distance for most neighborhood children. All three of my children have graduated from the halls of OP schools-Olde Providence Elementary, Carmel Middle School and Myers Park High. These educational institutions near the Olde Providence neighborhood come highly regarded, earning School of Excellence distinctions.
Olde Providence exudes all the charm of a bygone era when neighbors knew each other, and community meant more than just a place where you lived. The homes are well maintained and most have been renovated, allowing for today’s modern families to enjoy all that this neighborhood has to offer.
