Park Week 

When: March 6-13 2010
Price: Free

Everyone’s got their favorite park in Charleston. From action-packed Marion Square to family-friendly Palmetto Islands to the picturesque Waterfront Park, there’s plenty of green space for everyone. The Charleston Parks Conservancy is the organization responsible for keeping everything running smoothly, and they put together Park Week to encourage the public to get out and explore some of the city’s 100+ parks they may not have visited before.

Things kick off on Sat. March 6 with community clean-ups in Elliotborough and Windermere. On Sunday, bring your family out for a picnic in Cannon Park, where games and activities will be provided by the Parks Conservancy. On Monday, head to the Hazel Parker Playground for a presentation from horticulturalist Jim Martin on getting your garden ready for spring; plants will be given away every 20 minutes at the presentation. On Tuesday morning, take your pup to Ackerman Park or Hampton Park for a doggie social hosted by the Bark Angels. Thursday is a healthy day in Moultrie Park, with bike safety checks provided by the Charleston Bicycle Co., a beginner yoga class sponsored by Holy Cow Yoga, and information on the healthy benefits of running from “celebrity runner” Bob Schlau of Merrill Lynch. On Friday night, head to Etiwan Park for some star-gazing.

The week of fun concludes with Party for the Park: Amusement on the Avenue. This fair-style bash will be held on Ashley Avenue between Moultrie Park and Colonial Lake Park on March 13 from 5-9 p.m. Tickets for the party are $55 in advance and $75 at the door. —Erica Jackson
