What is the Low Line?

The Lowcountry Low Line would repurpose 1.6 miles of unused railroad that stretches down the Charleston Peninsula’s spine from Courtland Avenue to Woolfe Street. The land would be converted into a linear park, serving as a great civic space that provides a safe avenue for biking and walking, as well as a host of other benefits, which you can find out more about here.

Friends of the Lowcountry Low Line

The Friends of the Lowcountry Low Line, a non-profit organization, is coordinating closely with the City of Charleston to buy the property from Norfolk Southern, raise funds, design and build the Low Line. The Friends of the Lowcountry Low Line is also working with philanthropic organizations locally and nationally.


The Friends of the Lowcountry Low Line have an option to buy the right of way and property from Norfolk Southern. Our option expires in August 2017. City Council will vote soon to approve the final agreement and funding for the Low Line. Let your city council member know that you support the Low Line!
