Based on guidance from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention and recommendation from the governor’s office concerning the corona virus, the Charleston County Park and Recreation Commission’s parks were closed until further notice on March 20. In addition, all events have been canceled through May 10, including the Pet Fest and the Lowcountry Cajun Festival, due to the threat of the coronavirus. Some of these events may be rescheduled in the coming months. This precautionary action follows directives from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention to limit community events.
Money will be refunded to those who registered for events or programs that required a fee. We will continue to follow CDC guidelines for community events. For the latest information on Charleston County Parks closings, scheduling and precautions, visit CharlestonCountyParks.com.
