As part of a grant request for Gower Park renovations, the City received $500,000 from the Federal Land and Water Conservation Fund (LWCF) through the office of the South Carolina Dept of Parks, Recreation and Tourism. The City was required to provide a 1:1 matching requirement, bringing the total cost of the park’s renovations - which includes a reconstructed 65,000-square-foot parking lot - to $1.4 million. During this process, Gower Park courts will be temporarily closed starting Monday, August 7 through January 2024.
CP Builders will be renovating Gower Park with a reconstructed 65,000 square foot parking lot and expanding the footprint of the courts by 9,000 square feet to include:
- Two basketball courts
- Three tennis courts
- Ten pickleball courts
