Gahagan Park has a massive structure called Plantation Playground that is full of wooden walkways, overlooks and climbing structures. It is the perfect setting for imaginative play. Laurel Street Park has plenty of room for kids to run, swing, try tennis ,and play as well as a picnic pavilion that is perfect for having a birthday party or playdate. We’ve celebrated many birthdays here with family and friends over the years.

4. Dorchester County Library The Dorchester County library is a great resource for fun activities for preschool age children as well as older ones. They have circle time for ages 2 & 3 with stories and songs. Family story time for the whole family which is the best for children 5& under. Preschool Story-time is for 3-5 yr olds with stories, songs and crafts. Two other popular programs at the library are Music & Motion and Therapy Dog Time. It is amazing how children who grow up in the library and going to the library as youngsters are more comfortable using it their whole life.
