We spent the majority of our weekend hours outside as a family enjoying the spectacular spring-like weather! In addition to spending a day climbing at Pilot Mountain (click here for the Trip Report), we also took advantage of the extra hour of daylight by checking out a new park. Matthews-Sardis Park is located on (go figure) Sardis Road on the Southeast side of Charlotte (I think the address might technically be in the town of Matthews).
Sardis Park is a clean, quiet, shaded park with a neighborhood type feel to it. There are two playground apparatuses – one for little guys and the other for big kids. There are several swings, a small field with a soccer goal, and a paved sidewalk that outlines the perimeters of the park. It seemed like a perfect place to drop by after running some errands (or in our case – on the way back from the climbing gym).
One of the main components of a Green Hour is that it is “unstructured” time outdoors. So we just followed Cragbaby around and let him roam wherever his little heart led him! We walked, we slid, we swung, we plopped, we touched, we rode, we watched, we smiled, and we laughed. Good times were had by the whole family!
