Lancaster County Parks and Recreation

According to the South Carolina Recreation and Parks Association, “recreation is something that no one can do without, a vital part of people doing everyday living.” Lancaster County Parks and Recreation makes that possible for everyone within its cities and towns.

Lancaster County Parks and Recreation oversees youth and adult programming, sports and conservation efforts within the community. It also provides multiple fitness opportunities in its 38-park network, including basketball courts, baseball fields, walking trails, pools and tracks.

Beyond those services, Lancaster County Parks and Rec also manages an after-school program for elementary and middle school students in grades K-6. Supervised by adults, the after-school program gives children time to do their homework, but also to play and do crafts — all things that fall within its mission to promote fun and participation in the community.

Some of the trails in the Lancaster County Parks and Recreation system are part of the innovative Carolina Thread Trail System, a regional network of trails, greenways and blueways spanning 15 counties in South Carolina and North Carolina. Over 260 miles of trails and 170 miles of blueways are open to the public and serve nearly 3 million people.

Lancaster County Parks and Recreation recently announced the addition of the Twelve Mile Creek Trail in Walnut Creek Park as part of the Carolina Thread Trail System. Built with grant and county matching funds, the trail is approximately 3.5 miles long. It is adjacent to Twelve Mile Creek in the Walnut Creek planned development district and is open to the public from dawn until dusk. The trail ends at the North Carolina state line.
