Opened in 1989, the 195-acre park commemorates the building of the first true canal in America and showcases the area's extensive history and habitat.

Kenneth B. Simmons Associates was retained by Santee Cooper (SC Public Service) to evaluate, design, and administer construction for a new state park located in Moncks Corner, SC. Among its attractions are the Stony Landing House, built in 1843, and four miles of boardwalks that meander through the quiet backwaters of Biggin Creek and its surrounding swamp. The park's centerpiece is its Interpretive Center that chronicles the area's history as far back as 4000 B.C. Beyond its historical offerings, the park has become a popular destination for bird watchers, hikers, paddlers, and other outdoor enthusiasts. The Park draws approximately 50,000 visitors annually. Kenneth B. Simmons Associates received an Honor Award from the American society of Landscape Architects for this project.
