“Great Park for kids”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 5, 2013

Awesome park for kids. They also have a day camp with the counselor to child ratio being very low, which is great for any parent. The counselors are mostly on internships, so they put a lot of effort into the children's activity. There is a water park, a restaurant , and a bar for the adults. Also in the park are soccer field, beach volley ball , grills for picnics, etc.. etc.. etc.. A top notch community park!!

“Family fun”

Soccer fields, disc golf, pick up basketball, festivals, family pool (the pool with all the fun slides and water sprays is for little kids only) and the nature center. The staff in the nature center helps with bike rentals and other essentials. The are all super friendly and helpful

“Fun place for kids”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 18, 2013

And exercise trails for adults. If the beach gets too hot, play in the shady areas of this island. Kids are riding bikes, participating in Kamp Kiawah, enjoying the most exciting kiddie pool ever!

“Don't leave without stopping in”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 10, 2013

Even if you do not have pool privileges here (which we didn't) you can still enjoy Night Heron. We loved the little reptile zoo, where they have different kinds of snakes displayed plus alligators and other small creatures. There is a small gift shop also. This is where you would go to talk to the guides about the different nature tours you can sign up for.
