Get ready for some outdoor fun! The Whitehall Park on Lady’s Island has officially opened its gates.
This 10-acre piece of nature’s heaven, surrounded by the new Whitehall development, features 8 acres of a pristine nature preserve perfect for our furry friends. And the best part? You can relax in style under centuries-old live oak trees with Spanish moss hanging down. Take a stroll on the lighted walking path, have a picnic on the tables, or just take a seat on a bench and enjoy breathtaking views of wildlife and the sunset over the marshes and Beaufort River. And did we mention the restrooms? Yes, there are restrooms for your convenience.
What sets this park apart from the rest?
It is the scenic walking trail that leads to a pedestrian bridge connecting the park to downtown Beaufort. This means residents can take a leisurely stroll to and from the park and downtown area, further enhancing the walkability of this charming city. It’s just one more reason why Beaufort is an unbeatable place to call home.
An amazing community effort established the Friends of Whitehall Park. This community organization gave locals a powerful voice in the development of this beautiful park. Thanks to their collaboration with the City of Beaufort, the park is perfectly maintained to ensure maximum enjoyment for visitors. But the results go beyond just an incredible space to explore – Friends of Whitehall Park work closely with the County and City to organize activities and fundraisers.
They welcome anyone interested in volunteering, partnering, fundraising efforts and direct sponsorship. It’s a true example of how cooperation and enthusiasm can make a difference in our local areas. For more information, please go to their website or the Friends of Whitehall Facebook page.
So pack a bag, gather your loved ones and pets, and visit Whitehall Park!
