The Charleston County Park and Recreation Commission (CCPRC) recently purchased a .53-acre property in Mount Pleasant that will allow for parking expansion at the Shem Creek Boat Landing, one of the area’s most popular landings. The purchase included two lots adjacent to the boat landing on Simmons Street.
The land was purchased by CCPRC for 1.9 million dollars from PSC, LLC, and the transaction was brokered by Buckley Powell with EXP Commercial.
“The purchase of this land is wonderful news for boat owners and any user of the Shem Creek Boat Landing, which is currently one of the county’s busiest boat landings,” said CCPRC Executive Director Kevin Bowie. “We were very pleased to have the opportunity to expand parking at this site to better serve the community.”
Initial planning is now underway for the site work and parking spaces that will come with the purchase of the Simmons Street property. In addition, the Shem Creek Boat Landing will undergo previously scheduled accessibility and drainage improvements with repaving the existing parking lot this winter.
CCPRC maintains 19 public boat landings throughout Charleston County. For additional information on these landings, visit ccprc.com/Boating.
