Folly Beach is proud to announce the completion of the new Skate Park. At the urging of local residents, the City converted under utilized basketball courts into a mini skate park featuring ramps designed by residents and manufactured from donated materials. The existing courts were cleaned and resurfaced through a State grant and all additional costs were reimbursed by the Folly Beach Civic Club. This means that the project was completed at no actual cost to the City. The new skate facility is one of only two government provided skate facilities in Charleston County. This project was a direct response to the changing recreational needs of local youth and ensures that our limited Parks and Recreation facilities remain relevant and useful.
