Charleston's most expansive park offers a peaceful retreat from the city, with several appealing features. In addition to an Olympic size pool and picnic areas, the park has tennis courts and a nine-hole par-3 golf course. Walking paths wind throughout the park, which is a popular destination on sunny summer days.

This is not the best park in Charleston, Coonskin is much better. It has a small playground for kids and a golf course.

Not for those on the PGA tour but fun to play, and not very expensive. Pools are very nice, in the summer. Several tennis courts are available. The park is easy to access, not far off the interstates.

Named after the benefactor Judge Cato. He had a camp in St Albans near my mothers beach and would visit with my family often and he always attended my sister Luana's birthday parties and he would dance with Luana

A great place to take the family to swim free to get in. You can bring your lunch and drinks or buy them there

Really nice park with a decent golf course, but not being open on the weekends is pretty weird for a park.

Very nice small park and golf course! Great for a picnic or frisbee! It's a well-kept older park in Charleton!

We were looking for a park to hang out in with our dog, and relax a little. This park is in a great location, on top of a mountain. We drove through a beautiful old neighborhood; also went up some winding roads reminiscent of hills...More
