In the heart of Charlotte’s most vibrant community, SouthPark, The Sharon at SouthPark offers peace and quiet. An easy walk or short drive will take you to the city’s finest restaurants, groceries and shops. But if you need a break from life’s hustle bustle, you will find it throughout our 28-acre wooded campus, a certified nature habitat.
Relax and enjoy some fresh air and exercise on our nature trail. Walk with a loved one, friend or pet or go it alone. Plant something green in one of our raised garden beds. Enjoy the water features that grace the campus. Stroll over to Anne O. Moffat Park, named for our former executive director. Enjoy the fountain. Meet a neighbor; we created this park not only for our community but for the community around us. The sitting area outside our main entrance is the perfect place to gather. For the curious among us, you can see what’s going on! We do our part for the environment by practicing recycling and energy conservation.
Among the outdoor art that graces the campus is “John And The Lamb.” It rests on green space across from the main entrance. The little boy is meant to be John Creemers. He is the younger brother of The Sharon at SouthPark resident Harry Creemers. John, who had special needs, died in 1993 at age 39. Before he passed away, he told Harry’s wife, Martha Groblewski, that when a person dies, no one knows you’ve been here. In his words, “You’re poof.” The sculpture is the family’s way of telling John, “You will not be poof.”
The next time you are outside, pause for a moment at “John And The Lamb.” Enjoy the work of art, and the story it tells.
