Hampton Park

Charleston, SCView nearby places
Recommendations

Grab a croque monsieur and a bottle of Sancerre to-go at Goat Sheep Cow—a fromagerie located nearby—and take in this Olmsted-designed park which was the site of the 1901 West Indian Exhibition. The park is often overlooked as it’s not located South of Broad, but if you catch it during bloom season when the camellias, dogwoods, and tulip magnolias pop, you (and your camera) will not leave disappointed.

Notes from Hampton Park:
Hampton Park is one of the City of Charleston's largest parks. It boasts the most extensive floral displays of any park in the city. An old rose collection and seasonal displays are planted by the staff and volunteers caring for the park. This neighborhood park has a rich history recently documented through a project of the Charleston Horticultural Society, an audio walking tour called Layers of the Landscape. This park is home to many activities year round. Weddings, family reunions and many Frisbee games are but a few of the diverse activities seen in this park. The physical fitness trail is a popular spot for The Citadel students who live next door to the park. The park is an arboretum of sorts with many interesting species of trees and shrubs that grow in the Lowcountry. It is one of the few City of Charleston parks with restrooms and on-site parking.
