Santee Cooper constructed this 195-acre park in 1989. The Old Santee Canal Park in Moncks Corner features the Santee Canal, the nation's first canal, connecting the Santee River system to the Cooper River system. The Santee Canal was 22 miles long with three locks to lift boats from the Santee River to the summit level and seven locks for the descent of the boats to the Cooper River.
