Walter Elisha Park, located in the heart of Fort Mill, is a delightful place to take a mid-day walk or let your children let loose on the playground. This beautiful green space, named after a former CEO of Springs Industries, sits just a few blocks from historic downtown Fort Mill. If you get hungry, take a stroll to Local Dish on Main St for some wonderful southern food.
Walter Elisha Park provides 12 acres of space to stretch your legs and breathe the fresh air. An asphalt walking trail extends around the edges of the park. You can loop around the trail (probably around 1/2 acre in length) to get your exercise or follow an adjoining path alongside Hwy 160 to the Peach Stand and get a cup of Hershey’s ice cream.
Many people think of Walter Elisha Park as the Gateway to the east side of Fort Mill and on a beautiful fall afternoon, the playground is densely populated with playful children and on looking parents.
Several family activities take place at Walter Elisha Park throughout the year including the Easter Eggstravaganza, movies in the park during the summer, and the Strawberry Festival in May.
In just two weeks (September 29) The Humane Society of York County will hold the 3rd Annual Dog Gone Good Times Festival at the park. There will be a dog walk, BBQ for sale, as well as vendors and games.
Walter Elisha Park is just one of the many reasons Fort Mill is a fantastic place to call home.
Located at the corner of N White St and Ardrey St in Fort Mill, SC.
