Wi-Fi service added to four downtown Charleston parks

CHARLESTON, SC (WCSC) - Charleston Parks Conservancy is celebrating the addition of Wi-Fi services in four downtown Charleston parks.

Get Connected: Wireless Workday will take place Monday, November 10 from 11 a.m. to 2 pm. in Hampton Park. The public event will feature food trucks Ted's Butcherblock, Zombie Bob's Pizza, Auto-Bahn, and King of Pops.

Charleston Parks Conservancy worked with the Charleston Digital Corridor to add wireless access to Hampton Park, Corrine Jones Park, Magnolia Park and Community Garden, and Mitchell Playground. The addition of Wi-Fi was made possible by a $30,000 donation from the Speedwell Foundation.

Mayor Joe Riley, along with officials from Speedwell Foundation, Charleston Parks Conservancy, and Charleston Digital Corridor will be in attendance for a ceremonial cutting of the internet cord at noon.

The parks join Waterfront Park and Marion Square as Wi-Fi enabled outdoor spaces.
