Niplace for a walk and a picnic. Be sure to walk around the back alleys of the historic homes on site. There are so many amazing homes that you find yourself waiting to see the next block!

I'm not a history buff and I didn't get to take a walking tour. There weren't any plaques like at most parks where I could read about a statue so I didn't know what I was taking pictures of.

This is at the tip of the Charleston peninsula. Views of the harbor, Fort Sumter in the distance. Pretty park area to stroll, sit, people watch. Gorgeous homes adjacent to the park.
