The City of Charleston is moving forward with enhancing what is currently named “Daniel Island Park #4” on Island Park Drive in our Park Side neighborhood. This will be a predominantly passive park, preserving the existing magnificent trees and natural landscape.

We are sure you agree that the name “Daniel Island Park #4” does not do this beautiful site justice. We would like your input helping us give this park a name worthy of its charm.

Daniel Island Park 4 Site Plan

According the the City of Charleston’s Park Naming Policy, the following criteria should be considered in naming a park:

  1. Geographical location of the park or facility; or
  2. Natural or geological features proximate to the park or facility; or
  3. Cultural or historical significance to the city or surrounding neighborhood; or
  4. The name of an individual who has made a significant contribution to the community, country, state, or the field of parks and recreation. The use of a name of a person still living may be considered in exceptional situations or in the event of special significance.

We invite you to email Marie Delcioppo at president@dineighborhoodassociation.org with your idea for this park’s name. From that list, we will take the most popular choices and send out a survey. Once we have completed that, we will submit our recommendation to the City for approval.
