    Ironic that Charleston County Parks decided to close based upon recommendation from the Governors office, while according to the info I just read S.C State parks remain open. Cancelling or rescheduling festivals or events designed to draw crowds is understandable during a time like this. Completely closing these outdoor facilities seems to conflict with the parks’ responsibility to the public. With the issuance of proper warnings and educational guidance, Charleston County Parks could provide a valuable service to the constituents it serves while keeping the best interest of the public and park employees at heart.
