50 Years & Still Shining


2018 marks the 50th anniversary of Charleston County Park & Recreation Commission! The agency was established in 1968, and today is a large park system featuring over 11,000 acres of property. To celebrate this milestone and thank the public for 50 years of patronage, we will be hosting a variety of special experiences, activities and giveaways in the county parks.

Each week, guests to select parks and events will be the recipients of surprise giveaways or free activities from our team of "Memory Makers." Dog-park goers one day may be surprised with free bottled water, while guests to the fishing piers may find shade under free umbrellas, and event guests may find special VIP seating. Activities and giveaways will vary by date and location, and it's our way of giving back to the community that has support us for 50 years!

Thank you to these local businesses for donating prizes to the memory makers team!
