Thoughtfully planned trails meander throughout our community, connecting residents with the land, its history and one another. With a walkable core of shops and restaurants plus some of the region’s top schools, Point Hope is a place where meaningful living comes naturally.


Parks &


Enjoyment of the outdoors is a natural and vital part of life, and we’ve built our community to facilitate it as much as possible. Our miles-long trail network connects residents with shops, schools, parks and other points of discovery. Following historic logging roads and nature corridors, we are locating our trails, greenways and open spaces first, allowing the land to define the neighborhoods and the streets that serve them.

From paved bike paths to rustic nature walks, the trail network will feature varying purposes and surfaces.

Fitness stations and discovery destinations will add a sense of adventure to certain trails.

The First Light Park features an innovative playground with activities for all ages and abilities.


Coming Soon:

Doolittle Park

Plans are coming together for Point Hope’s swim, racquet sport and recreational center. Doolittle Park will be Point Hope’s signature amenity, a resident-only destination where you can do as much – or as little – as you desire. Named for aviation pioneer and celebrated military general James B. Doolittle, who had close ties with Harry Frank Guggenheim, this expansive park and recreational area is planned to open in 2025. 

A Community of Learning

Our Schools

The schools at Point Hope are an integral part of the fabric of our community – so much so that we ensured they were in place and welcoming students before the first home was ever built. Philip Simmons Elementary, Middle and High Schools are part of the celebrated Berkeley County School District, all with a technology-rich, STEAM curriculum and a student-centered culture. Located just off our trails, the schools are just a walk or bike ride away for students living in Point Hope.


Shopping and Dining Steps Away

Point Hope is home to a wide variety of restaurants, stores and professional services, all easily accessible to Point Hope residents and, in most cases, just a short walk away.


A spacious new Publix grocery store is open in the heart of Point Hope.


From dental offices to law firms, professional services are available to the community.
