This is a quiet and interesting place. From the old tabby walls of Fort Dorchester to the church tower standing alone among the graves, this is a great place to get away from the busy street scene. There is a picnic area, walking trails, and the Ashley River flowing beside the trails. The remnants of the old fort are very interesting too. Lots of good photo opportunities here. Best time to visit is early spring, fall and winter.
