1. Alhambra Hall-located on Middle Street in Mt. Pleasant is a great playground for kids! I take my kids there all the time, lots of shade, nearby restrooms and picnic tables.
2. J. Marshall Stith Park-located on Sullivan’s Island. It’s a great place to spread out a blanket and have a picnic under the many shade trees. You can even smell the ocean it’s so close to the beach.
3. Plymouth Park-on James Island. Fun playground, grill and baseball field nearby. Lots of shade next to a beautiful boat landing.
