Hampton Park is one of the City of Charleston's largest parks. It boasts the most extensive floral displays of any park in the city. An old rose collection and seasonal displays are planted by the staff and volunteers caring for the park. This neighborhood park has a rich history recently documented through a project of the Charleston Horticultural Society, an audio walking tour called Layers of the Landscape.
This park is home to many activities year round. Weddings, family reunions and many Frisbee games are but a few of the diverse activities seen in this park. The physical fitness trail is a popular spot for The Citadel students who live next door to the park. The park is an arboretum of sorts with many interesting species of trees and shrubs that grow in the Lowcountry. It is one of the few City of Charleston parks with restrooms and on-site parking.
Walk, Run or Roll
Hampton Park will be closed to all traffic on Saturdays from 8 am to noon and Tuesdays and Thursdays 6-8 pm for the spring/summer walk, run, or roll. Closing the park during these hours provides a safe haven for our less adventurous participants. This is an excellent way to unwind and release stress from the previous week while you enjoy the beautiful surroundings of Hampton Park. Call 843-724-7327 for more information.Tuesday, March 12 will be the first day of this program for 2019.
