Charleston County Waterparks to Open Monday, June 15th at a Limited Capacity



The Charleston County Park and Recreation Commission (CCPRC) will open its three waterparks – Splash Island in Mount Pleasant, Splash Zone on James Island, and Whirlin’ Waters in North Charleston.

On June 15th, all three waterparks will open at reduced capacity, and other measures to encourage social distancing will be in effect. Capacity numbers will be reassessed throughout the season. CCPRC staff members and lifeguards will take many precautions to ensure the safety of patrons at the waterparks. Staff will regularly sanitize floats, mats, lounge chairs, lifejackets, locker keys and high-touch areas. Some lockers, picnic tables, food service areas and registers may be closed to encourage spacing. Restrooms will be cleaned regularly throughout the day. Park-goers will also find changes to some operations including re-entry procedures and group bookings. These steps are being taken out of an abundance of caution to ensure staff and visitor safety.
