White Point Gardens, Charleston, South Carolina, USA


Located at the southern tip of the Charleston peninsula, this popular landmark park provides a view of Fort Sumter and Charleston Harbor, where the Ashley and Cooper rivers meet and feed into the Atlantic Ocean. It was first used as a public garden in 1837. With the outbreak of the Civil War, it became a fortification for the city. Visitors today can find a display of historic mortars and cannons from the Civil War period.

Southern live oaks are the primary tree in the park.

Palms line the roadway and side of the park toward the water.

Dogs can run off leash under certain conditions/times.

  1. If there are live oaks, what are dead oaks...?
