Washington Park Apartments for Rent(hide neighborhood information)
Washington Park, a mixed neighborhood of single-family homes and apartment buildings, lies in the West Ashley area of Charleston. Bounded by Ashley River Road, Magnolia Road and Savannah Way, the community has easy access to the historically significant places of Charleston (particularly as it lies just south of Charles Towne Landing, the location of the city‘s first settlement).
Washington Park’s pleasant bungalow-styled homes are mixed with urban amenities such as schools, restaurants and stores. Upscale day spas and the Chamber Music Society of Charleston are both located in this neighborhood. Abundant shopping choices can be had at the Citadel and Northwoods Malls, each with more than 100 specialty stores, movie theaters, and dining.
Historic Charleston lies at Washington Park‘s door. From the historic homes and churches of downtown Charleston to the plantations and accompanying gardens that line the Ashley, Cooper and Wando Rivers, Washington Park residents are just minutes away from the highlights of the city. Not surprisingly, several tour companies are based in the neighborhood, including Charleston Tours, which features a Gone with the Wind experience, and Janice Kahn Tours with personally-led walking or driving excursions to local sites.
Its West Ashley location affords Washington Park residents a wide array of outdoor activities, including water sports such as boating and fishing along the city‘s rivers and marshland, as well as modern urban pursuits like walking, jogging or enjoying some time at a neighborhood park playground.
Other family oriented outdoor activities include spending time at Folly Beach or enjoying water parks like Splash Island and Whirlin’ Waters, which make for a fun family day out. Like much of Charleston, Washington Park enjoys the natural beauty of the city with lush vegetation.
