What is a community without a park? Lucky for the residents in the county of Charleston, we won’t ever know! We not only have one beautiful park in Charleston county but we have multiple parks and recreation sites thanks to the Charleston County Park and Recreation Commission. 


The Charleston County Park and Recreation Commission (CCPRC), is a committee dedicated to making sure that all of Charleston’s local parks and recreation areas are a great place for the Charleston County community to enjoy and take pride in! 

The CCPRC mission is to improve the quality of life in Charleston County by offering a diverse system of park facilities, programs, and services. The CCPRC begin originally to be in accordance with a South Carolina legislation to promote Charleston’s historical and tourist attractions in 1972. But over the years it has developed into one of the most unique park and recreations agencies in the state, and they are responsible for over 11,000 acres! 

The CCPRC works to develop a unique countywide park system in which there is a variety of activities, outdoor recreation, educational programs, and public beach access for the Charleston County residents! 

Throughout the county, the CCPRC is responsible for; four land parks, three beach parks, four seasonally lifeguarded public beach areas, three dog parks, two fishing piers, three water parks, a historic plantation, 19 boat landings, campgrounds, cottages, a climbing wall, challenge course, interpretive center, an equestrian center, event facilities and a soon to come skate park!

These parks and facilities are located all over Charleston County including Folly Beach, James Island, Johns Island, and West Ashley. Although they offer their own events, amenities, and activities they all work together in the same system to provide a united and engaged community!The CCPRC is just one of the many reasons Charleston County is such a great place to live and we here at EarthWay Real Estate cannot wait to visit all these parks and recreation areas this summer!
