February 2019 Park of the Month: Logan Street Triangle Park
Logan Street Triangle Park is a neighborhood pocket park across the street from the Memminger Auditorium in downtown Charleston. Logan Street, Beaufain Street, and Coming Street make the three borders of the park. Before its renovation, Logan Street Triangle Park was a vacant plot of land with only some grass, weeds, and a dead tree stump occupying the space.
In April 2013, with funds raised and the sweat equity of members of the Rotary Club of Charleston – Breakfast, hundreds of trees, shrubs, and perennials were planted in the park. These include Cherry trees, Salvia, Cuphea, Society Garlic, Beautyberry, Itea, and Texas Sage. The renovation also included updated single seat benches to accompany the new landscape.
Later that year, more than 2,000 Daffodil bulbs were planted. The daffodils are Narcissus ‘Ice Follies’, a great naturalizing and more southern daffodil bulb with one flower per bulb, with a white outer and yellow center.
As of this month, the daffodils are just now beginning to pop up and should be in peak bloom by late February to early March. Act quickly to catch a glimpse of these friendly flowers as their bloom only lasts a few weeks.
