No city-operated parks can be found within the neighborhood boundary of Oxford Hunt. Most residents in the area, especially those living in the Beverly Crest subdivision, enjoy leisurely walks around the community's small lake. Many residents of Beverly Crest's seven neighborhoods choose to join the Beverly Crest Swim & Racquet Club, which includes amenities such as a large clubhouse, a pool, a playground, tennis courts and a large open field for athletics. Community parties, parades and even an Easter egg hunt take place on this property.
Residents looking to exercise
their dogs or take their children on a walk can enjoy one of South Charlotte's many greenway systems. Over 35 miles of these trails run in and around Charlotte, and many of those lie in South Charlotte, including Four Mile Creek, McMullen Creek and McAlpine
Creek. Charlotte's Park and Recreation department maintains a website with up-to-date maps and parking locations to guide greenway visitors.
Charlotte city parks play host to numerous events throughout the year. Independence Park in uptown has an amphitheater that features music acts during the summer months. The Green also sits in the heart of the city center and holds the annual Shakespeare Festival.
