Avenue of Oaks Park

East Cooper Land Trust accepted this land donation from Crescent Homes in 2018. The “Avenue of Oaks Park” is a half-acre parcel designated to be used as a passive recreational park near a new residential development in West Ashley. Two brick pillars with a historic wooden gate and an oak allée mark the park’s entry. Three grand oak trees exist on the property and three more are part of the canopy of the oak allée.

In addition to securing this land under permanent protection from development, other benefits include its potential to reduce flood damage, its function as a screen to block the view of developments from the road, its position as a natural buffer from the water, and both its recreational and environmental purposes.
