Riverland Terrace, developed in the 1940s, is James Island's oldest neighborhood. The Terrace is located just 10 minutes west of downtown Charleston along Wappoo Creek and the inland waterway. The neighborhood boasts a public boat landing , Charleston Municipal Golf Course , a playground, five restaurants and numerous antique shops.

Leading into the neighborhood is the historic Avenue of Oaks, consisting of 73 live oak trees believed to be over 100 years old. They once led to Wappoo Hall Plantation on the Stono River. A Civil War fortification known as Fort Pemberton, built in 1862, remains today.

The Terrace consists of approximately 800 homes. Sizes and prices vary greatly. Starter homes of 900 square feet begin at $200,000. Riverland Terrace has an active neighborhood association that meets 3-4 times each year. The community actively works to preserve the historical integrity of the community, thus contributing to the hometown feel.
There was a day time break in and burglary of a home in the neighborhood this week.  There were also reports of cars broken into a bicycle stolen.  Neighbors need to be advised to keep their cars locked, houses locked and alarmed when away from home, and not to leave objects such as bikes unattended.  If you see someone suspicious  or a suspicious activity call your neighbor and inquire if the person belongs there or call the police to come check it out.  Please remember to keep an eye out for house bound or elderly residents, and friends or neighbors homes when you know they are away.
