Tree Planting to Celebrate New Property
The Charleston Parks Conservancy, Mount Pleasant Land Conservancy and the Greater Avondale community are celebrating the first step in the Parks Conservancy’s plans for a new park and urban horticultural center in West Ashley with a tree planting ceremony at 4 p.m. Tuesday, Oct. 4.
The 3.7-acre property at the corner of Sycamore Avenue and Magnolia Road in West Ashley is currently a vacant, overgrown lot but now has the potential to become a neighborhood park, including Charleston’s first environmentally friendly urban horticultural center. A playground, community vegetable garden and a display garden are also envisioned for the site.
Charleston County Council approved the request to conserve the property through Charleston County’s Greenbelt Program in August.
Join the Parks Conservancy, Land Conservancy, local officials as well as the neighborhood community to commemorate what is sure to be a significant project for the Charleston region.
Special thanks to Triangle Char & Bar, 828 Savannah Highway, for hosting the post-ceremony happy hour and refreshments.
