The park features a 400-foot beachfront swimming area that is overseen by certified lifeguards at all times.

Overton Park is open each day from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. and will be open on weekends only after Berkeley County schools resume in August. The park will close after Labor Day.

Admission costs $2 for everyone over the age of 4. Season passes can be purchased for $40.

The park also has a playground and several shelters. Small shelters can be rented for $25 and the park's larger shelter is available for $50.
