HARTSVILLE, SC – Hartsville residents will get a chance to shape the future of the City of Hartsville’s parks Thursday, Nov. 12 as the City’s Parks Committee hosts a public planning meeting for park development. The meeting will begin at 12 p.m. in the Hartsville City Hall Council Chambers, found at 100 E. Carolina Ave. The meeting will take place at noon to allow participants to attend during their lunch break, and all attendees are welcome to bring a bag lunch.

At the meeting, residents will be invited to give their ideas for developing and enhancing recreation opportunities and addressing concerns at all City of Hartsville parks, including Burry Park, the Byerly Park Recreation Complex, Lawton Park, Pride Park, as well as the Vista on Railroad Avenue. The Parks Committee, which makes recommendations to Hartsville City Council on parks management, will then incorporate these ideas into a new master plan of potential future priorities for Parks and Recreation Department projects.

In recent years, the Parks Committee has advocated for major projects including the renovation of the Lawton Park Pavilion as well as the construction of a new stage and renovations of landscaping and playground equipment at South Hartsville’s Pride Park. The committee also encouraged the construction of the Piratesville Splash Pad, the popular children’s water play attraction at Byerly Park.

Those who are unable to attend the meeting but who wish to submit ideas or feedback may do so by emailing or by mailing City of Hartsville, attn.: Russell Cox, P.O. Drawer 2497, Hartsville, SC, 29551.
