Hampton Park is one of my favorite places in Charleston. When we lived downtown, we walked or biked there several times a week, and it's one of the things I miss most about our old 'hood. There's a pretty little pond with ducks and geese, mossy old live oaks, and endless gardens that always seem to be in bloom. Over the years, it's served as a horse race track, a zoo, and a Civil War prisoner-of-war-camp. Another historic moment came when Todd and I got married under the oaks in November. Yep, it's a special place.
