BOB Awards Winner's Guide

Fisher Farm Park

Map21215 Shearer Rd.
Davidson, NC
  • Recreation


About 25 miles north of Charlotte’s glowing downtown, Fisher Farm Park is where the astronomers go when they want to see the stars. The Charlotte Amateur Astronomers Club holds two star parties every year, one in the fall and one in the spring, and the public is invited. “The stars are as good [at Fisher Farm Park] as they’ll get that close to a large metropolis,” says Jim Gaiser, president of the club. “It has a good westerly view over undeveloped land, so the sky glow [from the city] is minimized.”
