Seasonal Displays in Your Parks, Spring 2024

The plants added to our parks through the dedication of our volunteers and staff during the first quarter of the year are showing off!  Take a stroll through the Conservancy’s vibrant park gardens this spring and fall in love with Charleston all over again.

Marion Square – 329 Meeting St., Charleston, South Carolina 29403

The whopping 4,500 new flowers planted in Marion Square over the fall and winter months are putting on a dazzling show in “Charleston’s Living Room”.   The Conservancy shares the responsibility of Charleston’s most visited park with our partners at the City with the Conservancy contributing to the King Street and Calhoun Street corridors.  

Spring bloom highlights: poppies, ranunculus & petunias

Tiedemann Park & Nature Center – 38 Elizabeth St., Charleston, South Carolina 29403

The loss of a large tree paved the way for lots more color at this family friendly park in Charleston’s garden district and just a short stroll from Marion Square.   

Spring bloom highlights: foxgloves, violas & delphinium

Hazel Parker Playground – 70 East Bay Street, Charleston, SC 20401

Generations of Charlestonians have raised their children on this playground and community center.  This year the Conservancy cleaned out the garden beds around the signs and installed a beautiful flower display.  

Spring bloom highlights: anemone, alyssium, dianthus and blue fescue grass

Rose Pavilion at Hampton Park – 30 Mary Murray Drive, Charleston, South Carolina 29403

While we wait for the first flush of heritage roses at the Rose Pavilion, stop by and enjoy the beautiful bulb display that was installed in the fall and winter. 

Spring bloom highlights: foxgloves, lilies, tulips and daffodils

Medway Community Garden – 2069 Medway Road, Charleston, SC 29412

To avoid the crowds, pop over to Medway Community Garden on James Island to see the power of community investment.   With generous grant funding from HDR and BeeCause/Pro Mix, Medway has seen some big changes including the transformation of community garden beds to sustainable Vego beds and an incredible ADA accessible sensory pollinator garden in full bloom.   

Spring bloom highlights: snapdragons and lavender
