King Street car direct to the grounds. In the days of long ago, this Park was part of the old Washington Race Track, and under its great oaks, near the river, many famous duels were fought. In 1901-02 it was used for the South Carolina Inter-State and West Indian Exposition, but only here and there can a trace of that time be seen. It is beautiful with its sunken garden: and in the spring it abounds in a wealth of lovely roses and a profusion of various kinds of flowers.
