Hampton Park in Charleston SC

Updated: Mar 30, 2022

Not only is this park full of natural beauty, it is gorgeously landscaped. It is the largest park in Charleston, located on the upper peninsula. It is one of the few City of Charleston parks that have restrooms. The colors and textures of the gardens create many photo opportunities! There is a pond with a fountain, beautiful walkways, a gazebo, and huge mossy live oak trees.

This is 1 of 3 of the large mossy oaks. The one closest to the parking lot is this large live oak with the long sprawling branches. As you see in the photos, this park is not overrun with people. It is considered more of a neighborhood park, which is perfect for elopements!

But the one the locals refer to as the "mini-angel oak" is across the pond.

The fountain and pond adds a nice water feature with ducks and geese usually present.

Surrounding the trees and pond area are landscaped walkways.

With all the photo opportunities at this park, the most popular elopement package is the Fairy Tale Package, followed by the KISS elopement package. The main path to the gazebo is lined in trees and lamp posts.

The gazebo is great for photos as well as a plan B for the dreaded rain!

I love the side path from the gazebo with the low hanging spanish moss!
