Wragg Square Renovation
Wragg Square is one of the most historic parks in the City of Charleston, dating back to the early 19th century. Located in the heart of downtown near the Charleston Visitor Center, the park is bounded by a historic brick wall and a finely crafted wrought-iron fence.
In partnership with the City of Charleston and the Mazyck-Wraggborough Neighborhood Association, the Charleston Parks Conservancy lead an effort to revive and renovate Wragg Square. The first phase was completed by the city in early 2016 included refurbishing the steps leading up to the park and making it more accessible. The Conservancy has planned the second phase to include benches, gardens and a large Grecian urn for plantings.
The Dewberry Foundation, the State Ports Authority, Bennett Hospitality, and the Mazyck-Wraggborough Neighborhood have pledged a generous amount to launch the project. Upon its completion, Wragg Square has been cared for by the Charleston Parks Conservancy and Park Angel volunteers through the Garden in the Parks program.
