Angel Oak Park 


Angel Oak Park

The famous Angel Oak Tree is located in Angel Oak Park on John’s Island, about 12 miles from downtown Charleston. The 20-minute drive is well worth it to see this massive Oak Tree which is believed to be around 400 years old. The tree is not exceptionally tall, but the vast limbs that stretch out produce shade that covers about 17,000 sq ft. The Angel Oak, named after the estate on which it stood, once belonged on the property of Justus Angel and his wife Martha Waight Tucker Angel. According to local folklore, the ghosts of slaves appearing around the tree as angels at night began to grow and so the tree became “Angel”. This tree has survived countless hurricanes, floods, and earthquakes over the years. Admission to Angel Oak Park is free but donations are always welcome to help with preservation. The park has picnic areas for people to enjoy during their visit, as well as a gift shop.
