New waterfront park could be coming to Lady’s Island

ladys islandA new waterfront park could be coming to the Whitehall Plantation development at the other side of the Woods Memorial Bridge on Lady’s Island in a new proposal, according to an article published by the Beaufort Gazette.

Developers building on the Whitehall location have offered to sell up to 10 acres of the property for a public park to be built, according to the article.

Developers have envisioned a waterfront park with walking and biking trails along the Beaufort River which would be accessible from downtown by using the Woods Memorial Bridge and would be treated as an extension of Henry C. Chambers Waterfront Park and would be eventually be part of a walking and biking network connecting a loop between Beaufort, Lady’s Island and Port Royal.

Developers plan to build an independent living facility with a pool at the site, along with commercial space, homes and condos.

According to the Gazette article, a deal for the park would have to come together by the end of August.
