Parks & Recreation For All!

Charleston County Parks has begun a comprehensive planning process to map out the next 10 years. Known as “Parks & Recreation for All!” (PARFA), the plan will build upon our original 2013 “Parks for Tomorrow” plan.

Our goal is to create a blueprint to guide capital improvements, land acquisition, events, programs, and amenities. The result should be a roadmap for our growth and development. 

Public Engagement Opportunities

Public engagement with residents, visitors, and nonprofit and public partners plays a vital role in the planning process.
