Our Parks

Gilland Memorial Park

Gilland Memorial Park is located in Kingstree along the banks of the Black River. The Black River is free-flowing through undisturbed swamp forest. Low water levels provide white sandbars amid the inky black water which is produced by tannins leaching from leaves. The undeveloped land provides a home for endangered species such as the herb American chaffseed and the raptor swallow-tailed kite. There are several access points in Georgetown and Williamsburg Counties, including the naturally beautiful Gilland Memorial Park in Kingstree.

Gilland Memorial Park is open daily, dawn to dusk. It features a one lane boat ramp, picnic shelter, playground, and paved parking for vehicle/trailers.

Kellahan Park

The park is surrounded by fence and holds a beautiful center fountain, wooden gazebo, and several swing sets for small children to enjoy.

Kellahan Park is open during the daylight hours 7 days a week.
