Charleston is one of the oldest cities in the United States. As a major port during the colonial era, Charleston is known as a historic city with many buildings still showing the original, colonial architecture and old cobblestone roads. Beyond it's deep history, Charleston is also known for being a hub for elevated southern cuisine, several popular music venues, and a great vacation spot!
Thankfully, Westside is a relatively flat neighborhood, meaning there are hardly any incline which should help make your daily walks leisurely and relaxing.
The boundaries of Westside include Congress Street to the northwest, I-26 to the northeast, the Septima Clark Parkway and Sprint Street to the southeast, and the Ashley River to the southwest. The southwest part of the neighborhood may have more traffic during game days, so be sure to check the schedules before you head out the door.
Along the Ashley River, you will find Brittlebank Park, a ten-acre public park and nature preserve. Besides the waterfront views, Brittlebank is also home to two piers where you will often see local fishermen, several walking and biking trails, a playground, and a small off-leash area for your pup to enjoy and run off some energy! Harmon Field, the next largest greenway in the Westside neighborhood has baseball, football, and soccer fields, a basketball court, and a small playground for local children to enjoy.
The only other local greenway, Mitchell Playground, is a smaller greenway with a playground and is located next to the local elementary school.
