The last buildings have been torn down to make way for Northern Beaufort County newest park and scenic vista. The gateway to Lady's Island from downtown Beaufort SC will now have a park and beautiful open vistas of Factory Creek as you come on to the island.
According to the Beaufort Gazette the Beaufort County Open Land Trust purchased the property near the Lady's Island boat ramp over a year ago for $1.45 million. The project has been delayed waiting for a barber shop and realty co. to vacate the land.
As the buildings have come down the difference is remarkable, as they no longer block the views of the river. "The impact for residents is so immediate and profound because we've essentially opened this window for every resident and visitor to see Beaufort and Factory Creek and this extraordinary marsh," land trust executive director Patty Kennedy.
The park plan is for new benches, walking paths, picnic tables, and existing dock will become a fishing pier.
