Theodora Park is a unique park combining nature and art in the Ansonborough neighborhood of historic Charleston, SC.

Theodora Park adds a very special park to a city famous for its beautiful historic buildings and gardens. One of the many wonderful experiences of Charleston is walking along its streets and discovering something unique. With its distinctive integration of nature and art, Theodora Park is just such a place. It will become a favorite place to rest, repose, read a book, watch passersby, and so much more for residents and visitors. For those who attend events at the Gaillard, Theodora Park will be another adornment of this marvelous facility – a beautiful and exquisite ‘outside room’ of the Gaillard. 

Theodora Park was David Rawle’s vision. Every detail of this lovely space has benefited from his caring and gifted guidance. Theodora Park has been created through the collaboration of outstanding designers and artists, the City of Charleston, Charleston Parks Conservancy, and the truly generous support of many individuals, including the family of Theodora C. Rawle, whom the park so appropriately honors.
