With the City of Charleston and in partnership with the city’s neighborhoods, the Friends of the Lowcountry LowLine will work to make this new linear park network accessible, enjoyable, and equitable — a green centerpiece for city creating a network safe routes for walkers and cyclists and places to hang out with friends. It will connect with more parks and greenways, providing places for music and art, and help to address the city’s traffic and flooding problems.

About Us

I-26 flying over the Lowline.

  

Scott Parker, LowLine Board Member and partner in DesignWorks: "Much of the LowLine corridor occurs under the elevated I-26, an area that separates neighborhoods and an area that has been long neglected. Our corridor runs through different neighborhoods and different districts of our city. Our vision is unique to Charleston. We envision a series of unique places or parks, a park network that celebrates and enhances the uniqueness of each neighborhood and district within the city. This will be a place for all our citizens and a place that brings all our citizens together." 


Linkage for the Charleston region

What Can it Be?

  

We believe the LowLine will become a key segment in a larger network of linear parks that will run throughout our region. This network will connect the peninsula to West Ashley, to North Charleston and to Mt Pleasant. This green infrastructure will bring our region together. Importantly, this green network will enable alternate modes of transportation, helping to solve our current transportation challenges.

Endless possibilities in sun or shade

Behind Us....And Ahead

  

The Friends of the Lowcountry LowLine (FLL) successfully negotiated the purchase of the property and acquired it jointly with the City of Charleston.  It is now the property of the citizens of Charleston. FLL and the city now have an agreement governing how the property will be .

Next Steps: 1/to engage with the community to design what it will be, and how it will serve the neighborhoods around it, and 2/to set up a mechanism to fund the design, construction, and maintenance of the Lowline.
