March 5, 2017, All Day
Come enjoy all the play with none of the pay during Customer Appreciation Day as our way of thanking you with no admission fees all day and bonus activities. Customer Appreciation Day could also be your lucky day! While in many of our parks, visitors can register for a chance to win a Gold Pass Membership. Accept our invitation for a fun-filled day of adventure. Whisk the family away to palmetto-lined vistas, savor a picnic lunch along tidal creeks, or stroll leisurely on self-guided nature trails. All of this and much more can be found at your Charleston County Parks. It’s easy, it’s fun, and on Customer Appreciation Day, it’s free.

Our pets love us unconditionally - so why not give back to your best friends by bringing them out to experience a day of fun, frolic and exploration? Pets and their owners are invited to join Charleston County Parks for a full weekend of exhibits, demonstrations, experts, entertainment, and more at Charleston’s premiere pet festival! Pet Fest provides an opportunity for local pet-related organizations and businesses to showcase their causes, products and services in a fun, animal-friendly environment. Leashed pets are welcome with their owners! Or, come to the festival in search of your new best friend from area rescue groups, who will have adoptable animals on site.
