New Park in the Works on Folly Road 

Greenbelt Program

The Town of James Island and the City of Charleston have been working together on a plan for a new Park on Folly Road.  “Brantley Park” will be on a .46 acre parcel at the corner of Folly and Brantley  Drive.  It includes majestic grand oak trees, a dock at the end of a small creek and beautiful marsh views towards Ellis Creek.  The Town and City propose to share the cost of purchasing the site equally, each using a portion of their Greenbelt allocations.   This commercially-zoned property was slated for sale, so this plan will protect the area from the many intensive commercial uses possible.   The appraised value of the property is $466,000, so each municipality would contribute approximately $233,000. The Town has proposed that it manage the Park and fund possible improvements, which would come through additional public input sessions.   Applications for Greenbelt funds are due at the end of February and this parcel might not be available for long.   The partnership has received a favorable vote from the City’s Parks and Recreation Committee and will come before James Island Town Council at its regular meeting on February 21. Below are pictures of the site located at 1708 Brantley Drive.
