James Island County Park
We invite you to enjoy the natural beauty of James Island County Park, with year-round fun for the entire family. Admission allows you to enjoy grassy open meadows, saltwater fishing* and crabbing, a spray play fountain (open seasonally), miles of paved trails for walking, biking, and skating, picnic spots with tables and grills, dog park, sand volleyball court, horseshoe pits, and more.
It is a place like no other, not frozen in time but vibrant, dynamic, and constantly evolving, where the winds of change whisper through the oak trees and voices from the past speak to all who pause to listen. McLeod Plantation was built on the riches of sea island cotton - and on the backs of enslaved people whose work and culture are embedded in the Lowcountry?s very foundation.
