Folly Beach County Park’s updated Dunes House facility will be open to the public Aug. 19 and 26 from 5 – 8 p.m. for an “Evening in The Park” — a free event that will be sharing all the new amenities the park has to offer. 

The Dunes House features outdoor showers, accessible restrooms, changing facilities, a covered picnic area, a snack bar and a large viewing deck. The facilities also offer accessible parking and an accessible crossover to the beach.

Improvements to the Dunes House are not brand new, but local residents may not have had a chance to visit because of the ongoing pandemic — so, now’s your chance.  Additionally, kids aged 7 and up are invited to join Charleston County Parks on the beach to learn about sharks. The program has a limited capacity, and spots are available on a first-come, first-served basis. To ensure your spot in one of the sessions, arrive early to register.

Folly Beach County Park is located at 1110 West Ashley Ave. For more information, call (843) 795-4386 or visit
