RibbonWalk is a nature preserve and a botanical forest located in the city of Charlotte, North Carolina. It is a 188-acre urban forest, designed to protect a large amount of forest and wetland habitats.

The RibbonWalk started out as a project by the Mecklenburg County and the Charlotte Botanical Society in the 1980s. It was named after the woodland garden owned by Queen Charlotte?s mother-in-law, known as ?RibbonWalk?. As most would know, the city was named after this Queen, wife of England?s King George III. It started out with only 155 acres, but as time go by, additional areas were purchased and added.

RibbonWalk is now operated as an environmental education center on top of everything else. It doesn?t have permanent restroom facilities, but portable toilets and a handwashing station is available in the site.
