Northwood Office is pleased to announce the opening of a new community park located on the former golf course in Ballantyne.
“We’re excited to provide a unique place for our customers and the greater Charlotte community to connect with nature, support local and be inspired,” said Hailey Rorie, director of community relations, Northwood Office. “Our team has already been hard at work activating Ballantyne’s Backyard with monthly markets and weekly fitness classes, and we look forward to creating more meaningful experiences throughout the year.”
The opening of Ballantyne’s Backyard coincided with Northwood Office’s inaugural Markets at 11, an open-air market series, on May 8. The event features over 40 small business vendors, live music, local food, beer and other family-friendly activities and occurs on the second Saturday of each month.
“Transforming this green space into a community park is the first step toward a more walkable and inclusive environment,” said John Barton, president of Northwood Office. “As we evolve toward a mixed-use destination through Ballantyne Reimagined, we recognize that our natural space is unparalleled, and we want to make sure it’s accessible to everyone.”
Ballantyne’s Backyard features over 100 acres of lush green space with miles of running and walking trails, rolling hills and fishing ponds the whole family can enjoy. The park is nestled between existing office buildings on the east side of Northwood’s Ballantyne property and accessible from the main entrance off North Community House Road.
Northwood’s commitment to sustainability continues to be top of mind and earned its office portfolio the EPA’s 2021 ENERGY STAR® Partner of the Year award in April. Ballantyne’s Backyard is currently home to various wildlife species and will soon produce honey from its first collection of beehives.
