MINT HILL VETERANS MEMORIAL PARK

We wanted to highlight one of our favorite recreation spots in Mecklenburg County – Mint Hill Veterans Memorial Park.  It’s located at 8850 Fairview Road in Mint Hill and has something for almost anyone who wants to enjoy the great outdoors.

The Mint Hill Veterans Memorial Park has been in existence since 1997 and houses something rather unusual – The Korean War Memorial.  We believe it is the only one of its kind in NC.  It was built to memorialize 788 North Carolinians who were killed or missing in action during this war.  It also pays tribute to all others who served in the defense of South Koreans freedom. 

What does the Mill Hill Veterans Memorial Park have to offer?  Natural shaded wooded trails for one.  There are wide trails which allow runners, joggers, and bicyclists to simultaneously enjoy the trails.  And it is very common to see your four-legged visitors from Mint Hill and surrounding areas enjoying the trails as well.  With over 50 acres you can find six tennis courts, volleyball courts, two soccer fields and one softball field.  Also, bring your horseshoes with pits near the children’s playground complete with swings and slides.  If you are looking for disc golf, they have you covered.  They have a nine-hole disc golf course that is sure to provide you some challenges. Restroom facilities, water fountains and three picnic shelters sure come in handy if you plan to spend the day.

The Mint Hill Veterans Memorial Park is open at 7 am and closes no earlier than 10 pm any time of year.  It is also home to the Mint Hill Madness Festival which this year is May 25-27. Mark your Calendar for the Mint Hill Madness Festival now you sure won’t want to miss it.
