Welcome to Dilworth
Historic neighborhood with an eclectic mix of small shops and restaurants.
Dilworth is an attractive neighborhood conveniently located close to Charlotte’s Uptown. The community is known for its historic bungalows and excellent shopping and dining options. Many of these shops and restaurants are located along East Boulevard, which runs right through the heart of the community.
Dilworth was developed as Charlotte’s first streetcar suburb in the 1890s at the southwest of the former city limits. Bungalows dating back to this early establishment still line Dilworth’s streets, along with beautiful mature oak trees and attractive homes with enticing front porches.
The 32-acre green space of Latta Park sits in the center of Dilworth, providing residents with an abundance of trails, picnic spots, and sports facilities. Freedom Park, often considered Charlotte’s signature green space, is located within the neighboring community of Myers Park at Dilworth’s southwestern edge.
Dilworth’s convenient location and charming streets make this a perfect place to relax, with excellent access to other areas of the Queen City. The new Lynx light rail service is easily accessible from East Boulevard. Dilworth is also the location of the Carolinas Medical Center, which is Charlotte’s largest hospital.
