“Saturday farmer's market”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 9, 2014

This was fun and has a great atmosphere. Mostly locals and families., but it was great for people watching and a relief from architecture and touristy stuff. especially, if you have children.

“Art in the Park during Spoleto”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 8, 2014

Some lovely artwork in pop up tents ... At night, drunks at the fountain. though a police care was in the park, it's a shame.

“Piccolo Spoleto”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 1, 2014

The annual outdoor 'Juried art exhibition' is always interesting if only to try to show you how out of step you are! Every ribbon was awarded to an 'arty' piece with the exception of the Mayor's Choice which was a charcoal REAL work of art. We bought a photo print from Steven Hyatt who had been featured in a photo in the Courier, mainly because we could see what it was with no interpretation needed.

“Charming, beauty & relation all in one!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 22, 2014 via mobile

This is a beautifully charming small but great park to walk through. It is centrally located to all in downtown Charleston and has well maintained grassy areas, fountains, and statues. Great to spot to enjoy a relaxing afternoon, taste & purchase local foods, treats & unique items from the many local artisians that are frequently set up in the park.

The square is located downtown and gives a place to relax and stop to enjoy the scenery. There are some churches and hotels along with several restaurants nearby.
