Special Needs Swim Nights continue July 15 and 29


The Charleston County Park and Recreation Commission is welcoming people with special needs, their families, caregivers and friends to a unique night at the waterpark! On Saturday, July 15, Whirlin’ Waters Adventure Waterpark in North Charleston will open its gates in the evening for these guests to enjoy. Splash Zone will host its Special Needs Swim Night on July 29.

Special Needs Swim Night will take place after the waterpark is closed to the general public, from 6:30 – 8:30 p.m. Located at North Charleston Wannamaker County Park, Whirlin’ Waters is the largest waterpark in the Charleston area and is home to the Otter Bay kiddie pool area, the Big Splash Tree House, Lily Pad Lagoon toddler play area, Rollin’ River lazy river, the Big Kahuna wave pool, the Rip Tide Run mat racer slide and the Tubular Twister slide complex. Splash Zone, located in James Island County Park, is a popular water park that brings the Caribbean to Charleston with island-style play structures, a lazy river and two 200-foot-long slides.

Admission to Special Needs Swim Nights is $9 at Whirlin’ Waters July 15, and $7 at Splash Zone July 29. Food and beverages will also be available for purchase on site, and lifeguards will be on duty throughout the evening.
