Charleston, South Carolina – November 10, 2014 - And then there were seven - Seven parks with public wifi service in Charleston, SC. What started in 2012 with a community grant from Google to bring public wifi service to Marion Square Park in Downtown Charleston, a popular gathering place for locals and visitors alike, has expanded to include four additional park thanks to the leadership at the Charleston Parks Conservancy, City of Charleston and a generous $30,000 donation from the Speedwell Foundation.

The Charleston Digital Corridor has partnered with the Charleston Parks Conservancy to bring wifi service to four new park locations including the Mitchell Playground, Hampton Park, Corrine Jones Park in Downtown Charleston and the Magnolia Community Garden in West Ashley.

"Adding public wifi service to Charleston's high quality parks allows visitors to stay connected while enjoying the outdoors," said Charleston Digital Corridor Foundation Director, Ernest Andrade.
