A new park is planned for Folly Beach. The county Park and Recreation Commission intends on buying the Front Beach Inn and four other properties at East Arctic Avenue and East 2nd Street. All of the 5 properties add up to about 1 acre. For those of you that are not sure about the location, it’s just over from the pier and the large Holiday Inn.
The plan for the park is create a park facility with restrooms, showers, and a playground. The goal was to create something similar to the layout at Isle of Palms County Park.
Some of the locals have strong opinions about how this came about. I believe that it will positively affect the Folly Beach real estate market. A view of the park instead of another high-rise hotel on front beach suits me just fine. Plus, it'll give beachgoers a place to shower off and availability of restroom facilities.
