Old Towne Creek County Park is a beautiful property in West Ashley that is not yet open to the public on a regular basis. Formerly Ashem Farm, the site was once home to Charleston preservationist Emily Ravenel Farrrow and her St. Andrews Riding Academy. The 67-acre estate is dotted with open fields mixed among groves of Live Oaks. The public is invited to come be inspired by the legacy of the Lowcountry’s nature and history with views from the park of South Carolina’s first English settlement at Charles Towne Landing, and the winding of Old Towne Creek through the salt marsh. Currently, Old Towne Creek County Park is only open for special event purposes and private rentals, but along with several other property holdings throughout the Lowcountry, it will one day become a county park available for regular use. Events like Wine Down Wednesday and Brewsday offer great opportunities for the general public to get a sneak peek.
