The Washington Square park is downtown in the historic area of Charleston on Broad Street. It’s a green park with flower beds and trees. The center of the park has a memorial to the Washington Light Infantry.

As the obelisk in the center draws you into in the park, you note the full statue of a man on one side and the bust of another man on another side. The obelisk is a memorial to the Washington Light Infantry and is about forty-two feet high. It is inscribed with the names of various battles.The full statue is of George Washington. The bust is of the Charleston poet Henry Timrod. Along the east wall of the park is a monument to Gen. Pierre Beauregard who was the Confederate general in charge of the city's defenses in 1862-1864. Huge trees provide shade to this quiet historical nook. You can learn some history of Charleston by visiting this park.

Washington Square is a lovely greenspace in downtown on Broad Street. There is a statue of Washington in the center of the park, hence the name. One may relax on a bench and sit in the shade.

This is a small park that we happened on while walking around historical Charleston. What a pleasant surprise! It is quiet, peaceful with plenty of benches and shade trees.

While walking through Charleston we discovered Washington Square. We didn’t get to enjoy the “sit and relax” aspect of it as it was pouring ( all day) on our visit. Still, umbrellas in hand, we walked through, reading plaques on several monuments there, and could still appreciate it’s beauty! Loved the George Washington statue especially. Directly behind him is sort of a mini Washington monument as you would see in D.C. Walking around this small, this well-maintained park you will see other monuments, lovely flowers and inviting benches under cooling, tree branches . Located across the Street from the Court house, so if you find yourself in that area, check out the park.
