By Jodie Snyder May 20, 2024

We all know just how hot Charleston can get in the summer. We parents are tasked with keeping the kiddos’ temps low while keeping the fun level high. One of the best ways to do this is with a visit to your favorite water park or splash pad.  Here are some of our favorites:

Our Charleston County Parks have some fantastic options to beat the summer heat. They have splash pads as well as waterparks with slides, pools, and more.  Plan to frequent the waterparks this summer? Click HERE for more information on purchasing a Charleston County Parks Splash Pass
