Like its name implies, Smallwood is a modest neighborhood in Northwest Charlotte, North Carolina. Away from the hustle and bustle of the downtown area, Smallwood houses only a few small businesses including some bars, auto parts shops, and a few local churches. The area is sometimes referred to as Biddleville-Smallwood, as the two neighborhoods sit directly next to one another. While Charlotte is considered the most populated city in North Carolina, the Smallwood area certainly feels much more like a small town environment with plenty of trees and natural landscaping to emphasize its feeling of home. The neighborhood has a cooler climate than one might expect and sees quite a bit of snowfall in the winter months. For those who want a taste of the nightlife, leaving the quiet comfort of Smallwood will be necessary.

Smallwood has a few hills in its greener areas, but the streets tend to pose less of a challenge. Mountainous regions span far beyond into the state’s western border and Charlotte’s city center rests at a bit of an elevation. Walkers can expect to venture to some high and low points throughout their daily adventures, but unless the walk takes a trip into a wooded area, there should be no obstacles that prevent access for your average person. Watch for snakes and small mammals in areas that are away from the main streets, as they can be difficult to see through the brush. As small as it is, Smallwood is relatively easy to get around and is most of its streets are accessible via Rozzelle Ferry Road. The neighborhood also surrounds the small waterway known as Stewart Creek, which can pose a mild flooding threat. Avoid walking in the rain when possible.

While Smallwood provides plenty of green areas to visit and walk along, the best kept area is Martin Luther King Park, which sits on the southwestern edge of the neighborhood. The park boasts 29 acres of walking trails, multi-purpose fields, and other areas for recreation that can be ideal for residents looking for a well kept natural area to get exercise in. While this is the only official park, Smallwood has plenty of lots and fields which usually sit empty, making them an okay second choice for some exploration in the grass. These areas are best scoped out beforehand, however, as they are generally public property. Smallwood is great for those who want a taste of nature without the ruckus of the downtown urban exterior to go with it and could be ideal for high energy dogs who require plenty of exercise in open spaces without having to worry about traffic.
