HILTON HEAD ISLAND, SC (WTOC) – A park in Lowcountry is undergoing an upgrade that community leaders say will connect the island.
The Veterans Memorial Park on Hilton Head Island is surrounded by other areas where people go to relax or have a good time. The problem is that currently none of these areas are connected by walking trails, so people have to drive from place to place.
This is where the city’s Shelter Cove connectivity plan comes in. After a few months of construction, they say it will be much easier to get around.
“The Shelter Cove connectivity project will feature a new public art location, it will include trail improvements, parking, lighting, landscaping and signage,” said Shea Farrar, planning partner. landscaped and urban.
Farrar says the project will also help the arts scene on Hilton Head Island.
“Not only will the project involve the additional trail connections, but it will also become the home of our public art program and lay the groundwork for the city’s rotating art exhibitions,” said Farrar.
She says people will be able to see 10 different exhibits along a connected path when the project is complete, something the city can’t wait for.
“We are very excited about this new business and hope it will bring a lot of value to the community and provide new spaces for everyone to enjoy,” said Farrar.
The city’s goal is to complete the project before Veterans Day in November, but Farrar says COVID-19 could delay the schedule.
