Parks in Charleston
Parks in Charleston are cool. Literally. Many of them have sparkling fountains (some built for play and splashing) and plenty of shady pathways or harbor access. From Waterfront Park downtown to woodsy trails perfect for bird watching, on weekends, these green spaces are where tourists and locals attend festivals, run road races, or just have a cookout.
Angel Oak Park
Every time locals bring first-time visitors to see the Angel Oak, it’s the same story. The newcomers have no idea the tree is going to be so big. Sprawling and majestic, it’s estimated to be at least hundreds of—maybe even more than a 1,000—years old.
Battery Park is the quintessential image of Charleston for most Holy City locals. Here you are completely surrounded by the charms that Charlestonians love the most- antebellum historic homes, a view of the Ravenel Bridge across the harbor, and centuries old oaks alongside stately palmettos.
During the summer, kids are always dashing through the fountain here, and whole families can fit on the wide bench swings that face the harbor. The eight-acre park and pier is in a prime vantage point on the Peninsula for watching sailboats and container ships, or checking out the Southern flower gardens.
James Island County Park
Charleston County has an impressive park system, and this one tops the list as a fun zone. You can go fishing and crabbing in tidal creeks, cycle or jog on miles of paved trails, try stand-up paddleboarding or kayaking, or let your dog romp at a leash-free park and swimming hole.
