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
In light of the large gatherings taking place in public spaces both here and around the country, Charleston Mayor John Tecklenburg has ordered the temporary closure of all city parks and playgrounds.
As a result of this closure, the Hampton Park Walk, Run & Roll street closure that takes place on Tuesdays, Thursdays, and Saturdays has been temporarily suspended.
