Tiedemann Park and Nature Center is a public park and Nature Center in Charleston, South Carolina. The park was opened in 1939 and named in honor of Elizabeth Klinck Tiedemann. Mrs. Tiedemann had been one of the Charleston Playground Board's inaugural members starting in 1910.
In addition to having served on the Playground Board, Mrs. Tiedemann (Mrs. John C. Tiedemann) was a long-time officer with the first free kindergarten program in Charleston. Indeed, the playground building at 40 Elizabeth Street was used as the second free kindergarten for many years.
It includes a playground. It is operated by the City of Charleston which spent about $6000 on improvements to the park in 1993. Previously, neighbors had complained about the use of the park after hours. In 1998, the playground building was reworked by the City to become a nature center; the City planned to rework other small park buildings to focus on other topics around its parks.
In 2014, the city joined with the Charleston Parks Conservancy, a local non-profit, to improve the park with a new fence and plantings along the Elizabeth Street sidewalk, sod, and other features.
