It’s amazing what a cool playground can do. Just hours after being stung (three times!) by a hornet at Middleton Place, my 5 years old forgot all about it once inside Summerville’s Gahagan Park.
Next time you’re in North Charleston spend quality family time at Gahagan Park. It’s free, fun, relaxing and good for your health!
Things to know before you go
• The playground is nestled in wooded area that provides both shade and scenery.
• There are plenty of places to sit right next to the playing stations.
• There are restrooms on the premises
• Finding the park is quite an adventure!
I didn’t see any signs from Summerville to direct you towards the park. You pretty much are on your own.
I ended up asking a local resident. If you reach an industrial construction lot then you are very close.
Here is the Google Map and the park’s official driving directions:
From I-26, take the Hwy. 17A Summerville Exit (#199). Go 3/4 mile, turn left onto Berlin G. Myers Parkway. Follow the parkway to Gahagan Road, turn left onto and proceed 1.5 mile to Garbon St. Turn left and follow to the stop sign, which is West Boundary St. Turn left onto West Boundary. The complex will be one half mile further on the left.
What kids can do at the Gahagan playground:
Play hide and seek, run through tunnels, save a princess, be a pirate and have an overall tree-house adventure!
Climb walls, ropes and zip through the forest like Spiderman!
Dangle from a variety of monkey bars, including one little children can enjoy
Swing, swing and more swing!
Toddlers can play in a dedicated area on a mini-boat, riding tires, sandbox and more.
Brave the elements over suspended bridges
Have fun under the sun in beautiful South Carolina Lowcountry!
