McLeod Plantation was established in 1851 and has borne witness to some of the most significant periods of Charleston’s - and our nations - history. Today McLeod Plantation is an important 37-acre Gullah/Geechee heritage site that has been carefully preserved in recognition of its cultural and historical significance. The grounds include a riverside outdoor pavilion, a sweeping oak allée, and the McLeod Oak, which is thought to be more than 600 years old

Charleston County Park & Recreation Commission presents the 2020 Salute the Solstice Charleston Yoga Fest at James Island County Park. Throughout history, solstices and equinoxes have been sacred points to honor the flow of life on earth. The Summer Solstice is a time for us to come back to balance, and thrive in the joys of life. As the sun rises to the highest point in the sky, Charleston will gather to Salute the Solstice, celebrating our connection and the light that is within each of us. This gathering is an opportunity to practice with teachers from Charleston's yoga studios. You'll experience meditation, 108 Sun Salutations, safe hands-on adjustments, live music and the sweetness of moving in nature.
