East Boulevard is the heart of Dilworth and is the main thoroughfare with restaurants, retail shops and everyday necessities close at hand. Dilworth’s borders are formed roughly by Morehead Street, South Boulevard and Ideal Way to Freedom Park.
The neighborhood’s charm comes from its many 1920s to 1940s homes that have been converted to local businesses and offices as well as the residences that have been lovingly updated and renovated. The neighborhood is mainly bungalows, however, there are a few Queen Anne and Colonial Revival homes.
Dilworth’s side roads and Dilworth Road East and West have sidewalks shaded under centuries old oaks, making the neighborhood a comfortably walkable place to enjoy the outdoors and the lush, mature landscaping surrounding homes.
Carolinas Medical Center, the area’s only level 1 trauma center, is located on the edge of Dilworth and is just a few minutes away from any point in the neighborhood.
Dilworth borders neighboring Sedgefield and South End, which is home to some fantastic restaurants, shops and breweries. People living on the west side of Dilworth can take advantage of LYNX light rail service into Uptown or toward Pineville. Even without light rail, Uptown is just a short walk, bike ride or drive!
