Beaufort County has acquired Whitehall Park!
Now the work begins for building a Park.
A Steering Committee has been formed to help direct the design, use and construction of the park, consisting of:
-City of Beaufort
-Whitehall Development Group
-Beaufort County Open Land Trust
-Friends of Whitehall Park
The mission of the Friends of Whitehall Park Fund is to sustain a collaborative effort between Beaufort, South Carolina residents and visitors which provides support for the preservation of natural resources and maintenance of Whitehall Park for community enjoyment and use for generations to come. This will be accomplished through volunteerism, partnerships, fund raising, and direct sponsorship.
The park has magnificent Ancient Live Oaks in a setting abutting water and scenic marsh views
The balance of the development will include shops and restaurants within the Whitehall property outside the park.
The park plan reduces the density of the project and eliminates scores of residences. That could reduce the traffic by hundreds of cars a day as compared to the current approved plan.
We are a community-based organization focused on helping to make Whitehall Park a reality and to make it a special place for our entire community.
