[ARCHIVED] City closes Marina, Pigeon Point boat landings, and park playgrounds

Pigeon Pt Landing 4

BEAUFORT, S.C. – As of April 1, in compliance with directives from Gov. Henry McMaster, the City of Beaufort has:

  • Closed the boat landings at the Downtown Marina and at Pigeon Point. These are public access points to local waterways. Commercial fishermen are exempted from this.
  • Closed playgrounds at City parks.

Restrooms at Waterfront Park, Washington Street Park, and Pigeon Point Park are open, and will be cleaned at least three times a day. Restrooms at Southside Park are closed. The dog park at Southside Park remains open, but no more than three people are allowed there at one time.

Anyone who uses City parks is asked to comply with social distancing practices, and keep six feet away from anyone else (other than immediate family). No more than three people should be in a group.

Residents are asked to report potential violations by calling 843-524-2777.

On March 30, McMaster ordered public access to all waterways and beaches in South Carolina to be closed. On March 31, he ordered all non-essential businesses, recreation centers, salons, playgrounds, etc., closed through April 30.

At its March 31 special meeting, Beaufort City Council urged residents to comply with social distancing guidelines as they take walks and bike rides within their neighborhoods, instead of driving to a recreational area.
