Tiedemann Park and Nature Center is a public park and Nature Center in Charleston, South Carolina.[1][2] The park was opened in 1939 and named in honor of Elizabeth Klinck Tiedemann.[3] Mrs. Tiedemann had been one of the Charleston Playground Board's inaugural members starting in 1910.[4]

The namesake for Tiedemann Park was Mrs. Elizabeth Klinck Tiedemann.

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.[5]

It includes a playground.[6] It is operated by the City of Charleston which spent about $6000 on improvements to the park in 1993.[7] Previously, neighbors had complained about the use of the park after hours.[8] 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.[9]

Tiedemann Park includes a one-story recreation center.

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.[10]
