Dorchester County, S.C. - The Pine Trace Natural Area Ground Breaking Ceremony is set to take place on March 9th, marking the beginning of a new park that will offer residents of the area an opportunity to enjoy 300 acres of green space and recreation.
Funds for the new park were approved by voters in a 2019 referendum, and the county has been working to make this vision a reality ever since. County Councilman David Chinnis expressed his excitement for the project.
"Instead of 900 homes, we will now have 300 acres of beautiful green space and recreation opportunities for our community," Chinnis said on social media.
The Pine Trace Natural Area is located on the outskirts of town and is currently undeveloped land. The county plans to create a park that will offer a variety of activities for visitors, including hiking trails, picnic areas, and wildlife viewing opportunities.
Local residents are eagerly anticipating the ground breaking ceremony, expressing their enthusiasm for the new park. Many are looking forward to having a place where they can escape the hustle and bustle of everyday life and enjoy the natural beauty of the area.
"I'm so excited about this new park," says Jane Smith, a resident of the area. "It's going to be a great place to take my kids and grandkids and enjoy some time in nature."
The Pine Trace Natural Area is expected to take some time to fully develop, but the ground breaking ceremony is an important milestone in the project. County officials and community members alike are looking forward to the park's completion and the many opportunities it will offer for recreation and relaxation.
