Isle of Palms County Park was developed by the Charleston County Park & Recreation Commission in 1996 in response to public demand for improved beach access in the East Cooper area. The park is operated for the enjoyment of the citizens and visitors of Charleston County. Isle of Palms County Park offers beautiful ocean frontage with lifeguards on duty seasonally along a beachfront designated swimming area. Dogs must be leashed at all times.
