Charlotte Homes

Madison Park vs. Collins Park in Charlotte, NC

If you have driven through Madison Park or Collins Park in South Charlotte then you know that there are 3 bedroom ranches that are being renovated on almost every street.  The neighborhood is located about 3 miles south of Uptown Charlotte and sits between Park Road and South Blvd.  Woodlawn Rd. divides the two neighborhoods.  Though Collins Park is located just north of Madison Park (making it closer to the city), the homes in Madison Park always have and probably always will be more expensive and more sought after.  There have been two reasons for this in the past and a third is being added to the picture. 

Madison Park has the advantage over Collins Park because it has a road (Montford) that takes you directly to Park Rd.  If you lived in Collins Park you would have to take Woodlawn to Park.  Also, most of the homes in Madison Park have 2 bathrooms where as most of the homes in Collins Park only have 1 bathroom.  Both neighborhoods have decent sized lots and the majority of the homes have fenced backyards. 

The city of Charlotte has decided to build a nice sidewalk through Madison Park.  The sidewalk is going to be on Murrayhill, which goes directly through the heart of the neighborhood.  From being a former resident of Collins Park I can say that the residents there would also like more and better sidewalks.  Both neighborhoods are great and I enjoyed living in the area.  There are a lot of great restaurants, grocery stores and shopping centers very close to both neighborhoods.
