Conway can meet the recreational needs of residents and visitors alike. The Waccamaw River runs through downtown Conway and supports such water activities as boating, waterskiing, hydrosliding and jet skiing. Rent a pontoon from Waccamaw Outfitters and enjoy the day relaxing on the river. In addition, the Waccamaw River is an excellent haven for fishermen. With two marinas located in the downtown area, one public and one private, access to the water activities are apparent.

Within the numerous wooded sections of the area, one will find ample game. Deer and duck seasons bring hunting enthusiasts from across the region.

Conway Parks & Recreation Department oversees organized sports for adults and children on a year-round basis, everything from baseball, football, soccer and basketball. The city maintains two beautiful parks. One of these is Collins Memorial Park, a very attractive area near downtown, featuring tennis courts, picnic shelter areas and children’s playground equipment. The other is Riverfront Park, located along the Waccamaw River in the historic district of Conway. It features children’s playground equipment, picnic areas and a band stand for local concerts and annual festivals. Just down the street from Riverfront Park, the city oversees the Riverfront Tennis Center, a members only, lighted facility with clay courts and a pro shop.
