Gilland Memorial Park is located in Kingstree along the banks of the Black River.  It features a one lane boat ramp, picnic shelter, playground, and paved parking for vehicle/trailers.

The Black River is free-flowing through undisturbed swamp forest. Low water levels provide white sandbars amid the inky black water which is produced by tannins leaching from leaves. The undeveloped land provides a home for endangered species such as the herb American chaffseed and the raptor swallow-tailed kite.
