Lake Park, a village in northwest Union County, is 15 miles from downtown Charlotte, North Carolina. Villagers have built a variety of homes here: traditional single-family homes, care-free patio homes, condominiums, and townhomes.
Lake Park’s landmark, a chiming clocktower, overlooks this beautiful village with churches, schools, shops, offices, and a community center. Three parks, 2 swimming pools, a wading pool, a “feature pool”, 2 tennis courts, 6 playgrounds, and 13 ponds provide plentiful recreation and entertainment. Unique monuments and gazebos identify the neighborhoods. Pathways and tree-lined sidewalks connect them all, inviting residents and guests to enjoy the outdoors and each other.
Come see all that Lake Park has to offer and why it is much more than a neighborhood – it’s a home town.
A Letter from the Mayor
At the February Village of Lake Park council meeting, I submitted a letter of my intention to resign the office of mayor effective March 31, 2014. I have accepted a job promotion of District Manager with Fastenal Construction and Industrial Supply Company. I find it necessary to move from Lake Park as my territory is north of Charlotte including the Winston Salem area. It has truly been an honor and privilege to serve the people of Lake Park over the years. I appreciate the support and encouragement I have gotten from fellow council members, staff and citizens of our wonderful village. I wish you and the Village of Lake Park Godspeed and best wishes.
Respectfully yours, Mayor Kendall Spence
