he Sherwood Forest neighborhood of Charlotte, North Carolina was established in the 1950s. In addition to the Sherwood Forest subdivision, the area also includes the Castleton Gardens and Charlestowne Manor subdivisions. The area is bisected by McMullen Creek and just minutes from Uptown Charlotte. Sherwood Forest is also neighbored by the areas known as East Forest, Stonehaven, Landsdowne, Providence Park, and Cotswold. The area's dominant architectural style is the ranch-style house with brick or wood exterior but many smaller homes have been renovated or replaced by larger two story homes. In keeping with its namesake, some of the area's street names (such as Nottingham Dr. and Robinhood Rd.) are attributed to characters and places in the Robin Hood stories.
