With Hurricane Matthew approaching the coast of Charleston we are asking all Berkeley Court owners and residents to prepare for a power outage and clear balconies of any objects by Thursday evening.
We are thrilled to announce on Saturday, June 4th, the Charleston Parks Conservancy and City of Charleston will host a ribbon-cutting and grand reopening celebration of the new Colonial Lake.
The event will run from 10:30 a.m. to 2 p.m. and all activities are open to the public! Mayor John Tecklenburg will join the festivities for a ribbon-cutting ceremony at 11 a.m., followed by lunch and activities for all ages!
Conservancy volunteers will lead horticultural tours of the park’s gardens, visitors will be able to learn about Colonial Lake’s history with Nic Butler from the Charleston County Public Library and City & Conservancy staff will be on hand to discuss the renovation process. Enjoy a stroll around the lake while watching model sailboat races and plein air painting demonstrations from local artists!
Children of all ages are encouraged to participate in a park-wide scavenger hunt, enjoy games of hopscotch and jump-rope, or make their mark at Colonial Lake with sidewalk chalk creations.
Music and entertainment will be provided by John Cusatis and food and drinks will be available for purchase from some of Charleston’s best food trucks, including Smoke BBQ, Short Grain, Sweet Lulu’s Bakery On Wheels, Mac Daddy, and King of Pops.
Join your Charleston community on June 4th as we celebrate the grand reopening of Colonial Lake, one of Charleston's most stunning public spaces!
Colonial Lake Renovation Almost Complete, Volunteers Needed Mar 28th, 2016
The construction fence is starting to come down at Colonial Lake and a portion is open to the public. Next, the Conservancy and volunteers will add compost to the flower beds and gardens and then begin planting the flowers, shrubs and trees. Volunteers - both groups and individuals - are invited to join in planting the newly redone Colonial Lake. Any groups (businesses, civic clubs or organizations) wishing to schedule a park workday can sign up for a date in April or May. Individuals interested in volunteering should complete this form; you’ll be notified of scheduled volunteer days.
Also, the Conservancy is planning a grand re-opening celebration from 10:30 a.m. to 2 p.m. on Saturday, June 4 with a ribbon cutting at 11 a.m. We can't wait to gather with donors, volunteers, supporters, neighbors and park lovers to celebrate this beloved downtown Charleston park.
The annual meeting of the Berkeley Court Homeowners Association will be held on Thursday December 10th at 5:30 in the penthouse. Please be sure to return your proxy to a board member by November 30th whether you plan to attend or not.
