Huckle Grove is an historic tree park located in downtown Rock Hill. This one acre pedestrian park offers visitors a unique look into our country's past. Many of the trees in the park were cultivated from trees which witnessed historic events in the founding of our country. Each tree has its own story to tell.
To visit a website on Huckle Grove, created by a fourth grade class as part of Rock Hill Schools Challenge Based Learning Program, check out this link: Huckle Grove
The park was dedicated in 1991 and was named for A. W. Huckle. An endowment from A. W. Huckle in the 1960’s established funds that began the City of Rock Hill’s urban forestry program. Most of the historic trees in Huckle Grove were received by the City in 1987 as a grant from the American Forestry Association. Bricks in the walkways that wind through the park acknowledge the names of park supporters.
Educational tours for school groups are available by contacting Hope Matthews at 803-329-5122. Markers in the park provide information about the trees and their historical significance. Additionally, a Huckle Grove brochure with information about the trees can be picked up at the nearby PRT Office, Room 390, Rock Hill City Hall.
Parking is available at the municipal parking lot on the corner of Dave Lyle Blvd. and Black Street, diagonally across from the park
