To Help All Residents Experience the Charleston County Parks and Programs
Charleston County Parks Foundation has a vision to develop and sustain projects that enable people to access the Charleston County Park & Recreation Commission’s facilities, programs, and services for living an active and healthy lifestyle.
The Parklands Foundation was created in May 1990 by the Charleston County Park & Recreation Commission to generate funding for the continued growth and development of the county park system and support increased leisure opportunities for residents using non-tax dollars. In May 2014, the foundation transitioned into more of a project-based foundation focused on specific aspects of the parks system needing additional support. In 2019, The Parklands Foundation was renamed the Charleston County Parks Foundation in order to closely associate the foundation with CCPRC and the positive reputation it has in the community.
