The Department of Parks is responsible for the design, construction, maintenance and repairs of the city's new and existing parks, playgrounds, green spaces, facilities and buildings.

Property & Facilities - The city currently owns and is responsible for:

- 120 parks which consist of approximately 1,806 acres of parks and open space

The City’s Waterfront Park, deemed “this generation’s gift to the future” by Mayor Riley, is a popular destination for residents and visitors alike.

This park is an eight-acre linear park and pier along the Charleston Harbor entry. The park masterfully combines spectacular fountains, spacious lawns, intimate garden "rooms", walking and jogging path, and a long pier with picnic tables and wooden swings.
