White Point Garden

Posted by
Steven (Chicagoland, United States) on 29 July 2014 in Landscape & Rural and Portfolio.

White Point Garden is a 5.7 acre public park located in peninsular Charleston, South Carolina, at the tip of the peninsula. It is the southern terminus for the Battery, a defensive seawall and promenade. It is bounded by East Battery (to the east), Murray Boulevard (to the south), King Street (to the west), and South Battery (to the north).

The southern tip of Charleston's peninsula was originally known as Oyster Point and later White Point because of the piles of sun-bleached oyster shells found at the edge of the water. Later, landfill projects resulted in the sharp-edged terminus of the peninsula.

I was amazed by the grand size of the oak trees throughout the park with their far-reaching branches that appear weightless and just float in the air.
