CONWAY, S.C. (WPDE) - Because of high water levels, the Conway Marina Boat Launch, Crabtree Greenway, Riverfront Park and the Conway Riverwalk are all closed.

When the water returns to a level that is safe, these areas will be re-opened.

Saturday afternoon people stopped by the Conway Riverwalk to take a look at rising water.

"I've never seen this. I've never seen the Riverwalk flooded. It's just wow," said Thomas Stoddard.

In the last week the Waccamaw River has risen above flood level.
