Parks and Trails

Daniel Island is home to numerous parks, many of which are available for special events, birthday parties, weddings, and more.

Swimming Pools

The Daniel Island Community Association currently maintains three swimming pools at Pierce Park, Scott Park, and Edgefield Park. All pools are heated and cooled accordingly.

Pierce Park Pool and Scott Park Pool are chlorine pools. Edgefield Park Pool is a saltwater pool.

Pierce Park Pool – 1801 Pierce Street

The pool at Pierce Park is a 25-meter pool with six lanes and is open seven days a week from 5:00 am – 10:00 pm (may vary with seasonal programming). The Pierce Park Pool received new heaters in January 2018. While we can’t guarantee 365 days/year of swimming due to unanticipated extreme weather conditions, we are now able to expand our swim season into the colder months.

The pool is for the exclusive use of members of the Daniel Island Community Association and their guests. Guests must be accompanied by the resident at all times.

The Pierce Park Pool is not available for pool parties, swim lessons, or special events.
