Old Towne Creek County Park, formerly Ashem Farm, was home to Charleston preservationist Emily Ravenel Farrrow and her St. Andrews Riding Academy. Located in West Ashley, the 67-acre estate is dotted with open fields mixed among groves of Live Oaks. Currently, Old Towne Creek County Park is only open for special events and private rentals, but along with several other property holdings throughout the Lowcountry, it will one day become a county park available for daily use.
