Muriel Edge Weathers Shadow Race Park is the City’s most recently developed space. It is a unique and peaceful park that encourages calm activities and programs.

The Parks of Folly Beach


Folly Bark Park

510 E. Erie

The Folly Bark Park is located on the East side of Folly Beach between the 5th and 6th block just past the water tower. You can enter from Erie or Hudson. The park offers natural shade, water for the pups, seating for their people, pet waste bags, and receptacles for disposing of them. Some dog park etiquette to keep in mind:
• Should your pet show signs of illness or contagious disease, don’t bring him/her to the park.
• Don’t bring a puppy less than four months old or a female in heat.
• Keep an eye on your dog! Don’t let your dog be aggressive with another dog.
• Pick up your dog’s waste immediately.
• Don’t bring food for yourself or your dog.
• Bring a ball but be prepared to lose it.
• Don’t let your dog run in a pack. Intervene when play starts to get rough.
• Your dog’s shots must be up to date.
• A full list of rules is posted at the park.

Timothy M. Goodwin Pirates Cove Playground

Timothy M. Goodwin Pirates Cove Playground is located on the 5th block east between Erie and Hudson. It provides a basketball court, a tennis court, a dog park, and a playground area themed for Folly Beach with pirates, boats, and the lighthouse slide. Kids will climb on the rope-webbed jungle gym and the shrimp boat equipped with toddler slides, monkey bars, fire poles, tunnels, a rock climb, and bridges. There are baby swings, a tire swing, and a little seahorse bounce. There is also a gazebo where you can hold a birthday party or gathering. The gazebo is first-come, first-serve.

Wave Watch Playground

500 W. Cooper St

Tucked away on the west side neighborhood of Folly Beach on the corner of 5th Street West and West Cooper lies a fun, colorful children’s playground called Wave Watch Park. A towering playhouse centers the area with slides, ropes, and poles. Swings, a web rope feature, and spinning seats surround the playhouse. Creatively painted surfboards line the fence with ocean-themed artwork from local residences. Artists include children from the library, the Wetmore family, the Foxhall family, and the Grooms family. New bathrooms on sight use natural solar lighting and feature a framed chalkboard for children to express their artistic side. A gazebo and table fill the corner for snacks and refreshments while enjoying the adventures at Wave Watch Park.
