The park that stood in this location until 2023 commemorated Colonel Thomas Polk. Colonel Thomas Polk was an early settler, surveyor, state legislator, Justice of the Peace, founder of Mecklenburg County and of Charlotte, and a Colonel in the American Continental Army during the Revolutionary War. His house stood diagonally across the street from this park. The city is erecting a new park in this location and will be named McColl Park.
