Great news for park enthusiasts – the Springs Family recently transferred ownership of Walter Elisha Park to the Town of Fort Mill. Once the site of a Springs textile mill, the 14-acre park is a treasured green space for residents and visitors with a walking path, playground and home to the South Carolina Strawberry Festival. In addition to now owning the park, the Town also announced proposed park improvements. The Dodd Studio partnered with the Town to develop a master plan highlighting the enhancements, which includes permanent restrooms, an amphitheater and a widened walking path. Further details forthcoming.
The Dodd Studio is pleased to announce that the City of Shelby’s City Pavilion has been awarded the 2016 Best Outdoor Space Improvement from the North Carolina Main Streets Center. This 8,500 square-foot covered, open-air structure was completed in 2015 and is home to the vibrant Foothills Farmers’ Market while also serving as a new, unique community event space. This project demonstrates the power of collaboration and has served as a catalytic investment in an under-developed area of Uptown Shelby. The Dodd Studio is proud member of the team that helped turn the City of Shelby’s vision into a successful reality.
It’s been an amazing year at The Dodd Studio/FitFields and we are truly appreciative of every opportunity. We are looking forward to keeping the momentum rolling into the New Year. May you all have a most joyful holiday season! See ya in 17……
