A Walk in the Park: West Ashley Park
Looking for a spacious park with tons of amenities? Check out West Ashley Park, one of the city’s largest parks at 260 acres. It has four championship soccer fields, two playgrounds, 18-hole disk golf course, two lighted youth basketball fields, two lighted youth softball fields and plenty of room for the kiddos to run wild.
It has some scenic views onto waterways as well as a fishing area. Pet owners can let their dogs play at the dog run. Built in 2001, the park also hosts special events and athletic programs, including youth baseball games.
Readers of West Ashley Patch voted this park the best in their area earlier this spring.
The park, located on Mary Ader Drive off Glenn McConnell Parkway, is open from 8 a.m. until dusk. Parking is free, and this park has restrooms.
