“People are increasingly looking to stay connected to information and their social networks while they enjoy the outdoors,” North Charleston Mayor Keith Summey said in the news release. “Now, you can achieve both at Riverfront Park.”

The park, located on the former Charleston Naval Base, hosts events like the 4th of July Festival, last summer’s Rockin’ the River concert series and races such as the upcoming iFive:K on April 14.

“With existing events at the park and others planned, the 100mb public Wi-Fi service will enable event organizers to have a smooth and seamless use of the network for their internal operations,” Riverfront Park manager Lisa Reynolds said in the news release. “Operations no longer have to hard-wire a temporary network, in turn saving time and money.”

The Charleston Digital Corridor Foundation launched the Charleston Free Wi-Fi Initiative in February 2012. Since then, Wi-Fi has been added to Marion Square, Hampton Park, Corrine Jones Park, Mitchell Playground, Waterfront Park and White Point Garden in downtown Charleston, as well as Magnolia Park and Garden in West Ashley and Governor’s Park on Daniel Island.
