The Charleston County Park, Recreation and Tourist Commission was created in 1968 as a county special purpose district by an act of the South Carolina legislature. The original act was amended in 1972, authorizing the commission to promote Charleston’s historical and tourist attractions, to create and operate countywide parks and recreation facilities, and to provide technical assistance to existing park and recreation agencies and community groups. In July 1985, the commission’s tourism function was transferred to the Charleston Trident Chamber of Commerce and the commission was renamed Charleston County Park & Recreation Commission. We represent one of the most diverse park and recreation agencies in the State of South Carolina.
Each park facility offers a variety of programming generally directed toward the natural features and characteristics of the site. Staff and commission are committed to maintaining high standards in the delivery of leisure services and facilities to the citizens of Charleston County.
