Old Towne Creek County Park is located in West Ashley on Old Towne Road, and is currently only open for special events and private rentals. Formerly Ashem Farm, the property was home to Charleston preservationist Emily Ravenel Farrow and her St. Andrews Riding Academy. The 67-acre estate is dotted with open fields mixed among groves of live oaks.

Along with several other property holdings throughout the Lowcountry, Old Towne Creek County Park will one day become a county park available for regular use. Wine Down Wednesday is a great opportunity for the public to get a sneak peek of their future park.
