The amphitheater at North Charleston’s Riverfront Park is shown.

Visitors to Riverfront Park in North Charleston now have free access to the Internet.

The Charleston Digital Corridor Foundation is providing the wireless service, the city said in a written statement.

“With existing events at the park and others planned, the ... public Wi-Fi service will enable event organizers to have a smooth and seamless use of the network for their internal operations,” said Lisa Reynolds, park manager.

The Digital Corridor Foundation previously has deployed free Wi-Fi service at eight other locations around the region, including downtown Charleston, West Ashley and Daniel Island. The nonprofit group, which promotes the region’s technology economy, recently announced it will hold its annual iFive:K race at Riverfront Park on the former Navy base for the first time on April 14.
