Located on James Island and owned and operated by the Charleston County Park and Recreation Commission (CCPRC), McLeod Plantation Historic Site is a former sea island cotton plantation that has borne witness to some of the most significant periods of Charleston history. Established in 1851, McLeod Plantation is an important 37-acre Gullah/Geechee heritage site that has been carefully preserved in recognition of its cultural and historical significance. The grounds include a riverside outdoor pavilion, a sweeping oak allée, and the McLeod Oak, which is thought to be more than 600 years old. The site’s buildings include homes that make up Transition Row, where enslaved families and their free descendants lived during the 19th and 20th centuries. McLeod Plantation Historic Site is open for regular visitation every Tuesday through Sunday.

Charleston County Parks also hosts the happy hour event Wine Down Wednesday at Old Towne Creek County Park in West Ashley on March 22, April 5, April 19 and May 3. Wine Down Wednesday also features wine, live music, and food trucks.
