Folly County Park opening?

I read on the Charleston forum that the park is finally opening again on July 4th. True?

The Post and Courier reports that it will reopen on July 4th. Due to the erosion, the parking lot will have only 400 spaces ... half the number in the pre-erosion lot.

Not much. The park is at the far west end of the island, so not particularly close to anything on East Ashley. Also, in September most activity at the park, and traffic to and from the park, will be on weekends when kids are out of school.

coxy, there are several kinds of newspaper articles.

The ones that say something is going to happen are quoting whoever they're quoting, and nobody can guarantee the future. An article that says a certain thing happened yesterday is probably accurate.

County Parks & Rec has stated a July 4 target date. I hope they can meet it, for the Folly Beach park is sorely missed.
