Old Towne Creek County Park, formerly Ashem Farm, was home to Charleston
preservationist Emily Ravenel Farrrow and her St. Andrews Riding
Academy. Located in West Ashley, the 67-acre estate is dotted with open
fields mixed among groves of Live Oaks. Be inspired by the legacy of the
Lowcountry’s nature and history with views from the park of South
Carolina’s first English settlement at Charles Towne Landing, and the
winding of Old Towne Creek through the salt marsh. Currently, the park
is only open for programs and private rentals, but along with several
other property holdings throughout the Lowcountry, it will one day
become a county park available for regular use. Wine Down Wednesday is a
great opportunity to get a sneak peek of your future park.
*Charleston County residents contribute to the development of our county
park system through property taxes, therefore a discounted rate is
available to them.
