510 E Erie Basketball with Coach Brown

Coach Stephen Brown is a native of Charleston, Mt. Pleasant, to be exact, and currently lives on Johns Island. Since the shut down in March, he has successfully run 8 basketball camps and has been creative with ways to distance while still having fun socially. Coach Brown is the Athletic Director and Head Varsity Boys Basketball Coach at Charleston Collegiate School and a former collegiate player at Emory & Henry College. He's successfully navigated the two football teams, three volleyball teams, and two cross country teams through the pandemic with no positive cases in his athletic program. He's thrilled to branch out from the John Island area and spread his love of basketball to the children of Folly and James Island.

The Parks of Folly Beach


Bark Park

510 E. Erie

The Bark Park is located on the East side of Folly Beach between the 5th and 6th block just past the water tower. You can enter from Erie or Hudson. The park offers natural shade, water for the pups, seating for their people, pet waste bags, and receptacles for disposing of them. Some dog park etiquette to keep in mind:
• Should your pet show signs of illness or contagious disease, don’t bring him/her to the park.
• Don’t bring a puppy less than four months old or a female in heat.
• Keep an eye on your dog! Don’t let your dog be aggressive with another dog.
• Pick up your dog’s waste immediately.
• Don’t bring food for yourself or your dog.
• Bring a ball but be prepared to lose it.
• Don’t let your dog run in a pack. Intervene when play starts to get rough.
• Your dog’s shots must be up to date.
• A full list of rules is posted at the park.

Pirate Cove Playground

510 E. Erie

Pirate Cove Playground is located on the 5th block east between Erie and Hudson. It provides a basketball court, a tennis court, a dog park, and a playground area-themed for Folly Beach with pirates, boats, and the lighthouse slide. Kids will climb on the rope-webbed jungle gym and the shrimp boat equipped with toddler slides, monkey bars, fire pole, tunnel, rock climb, and bridge. There are baby swings, a tire swing, and a little seahorse bounce. There is also a gazebo where you can hold a birthday party or get together.

Wave Watch Playground

500 W. Cooper St

Tucked away on the west side neighborhood of Folly Beach on the corner of 5th Street West and West Cooper lies a fun, colorful children’s playground called Wave Watch Park. A towering playhouse centers the area with slides, ropes, and poles. Swings, a web rope feature, and spinning seats surround the playhouse. Creatively painted surfboards line the fence with ocean-themed artwork from local residences. Artists include children from the library, the Wetmore family, the Foxhall family, and the Grooms family. New bathrooms on sight use natural solar lighting and feature a framed chalkboard for children to express their artistic side. A gazebo and table fill the corner for snacks and refreshments while enjoying the adventures at Wave Watch Park.

Shadow Race Park

Third Block of W. Ashley Ave

Shadow Race park is the City’s most recently developed space. It is a unique and peaceful park that encourages calm activities and programs. Activities such as ladybug releases, bird watching, walking, relaxing, and reading a book on the pergola benches, contemplating the history of the battery that is on the grounds, and enjoying the landscaping are all possibilities to enjoy at this park. The landscaping has chosen plantings and fixtures to draw in unique local wildlife. Specifically, selected hardscapes such as bat, bee, ladybug, and bird houses are weaved throughout the grounds with a pergola and benches.
