Since 1985, America has celebrated July as the nation's official Park and Recreation Month. This July, the Charleston County Park and Recreation Commission is encouraging families throughout the Lowcountry to GET WILD about parks and recreation! Here is a showcase of some super wild programs at your county parks - everything from wild workouts and wellness to getting wet and wild at the waterparks or even getting wild with nature! For further details about any event or program, call 843-795-4386 or visit www.ccprc.com.
Have you ever wondered about noises in the night? Come with us and figure some of them out. Listen for owls, frogs, and others, and shine some gators and spiders along the way. July 19 at Caw Caw Interpretive Center.
Get Wild with Free Events!

Remley's Point to Shem Creek Kayak Trip
Departing from Remley's Point, we'll paddle under the Ravenel Bridge and past the mighty USS Yorktown. Along the way, we'll see the harbor from a dolphin's point of view. We'll finish up at Shem Creek in time for some post-trip entertainment. July 21.
Get Wild at Your Waterparks!
Get soaked this summer at your Charleston County Waterparks! Your three family waterparks are the coolest spots in town during the summer months, and each facility offers fun, family adventure.
Get Wild Tri-Style!
If you think you're up to it, get wild during the Charleston Sprint Triathlon Series. Each race begins with a 600-yard freshwater swim in the lake at James Island County Park, continues with a 12-mile bike ride through the park and out and back on Riverland Drive, and finishes with a flat 5K run.
