Everything is at your doorstep, schools, shops, recreation, and just a hop skip to the beach, the airport, and downtown Charleston. A mile and a quarter road connects to Park West. Carolina Park is built around the "smart growth" concept in which residents may work, shop and play within their community without having to go out onto highway 17.
