Breaking Ground for Miracle Park

On December 11, 2019, a ground breaking event was held for Miracle Park, a project designed for people of all abilities to play and work.  The park is being constructed on the former site of Winthrop Park (owned by the City of Rock Hill) and land owned by Winthrop University across Eden Terrace from the Winthrop Tennis Complex.

When all phases are complete, Miracle Park will feature ballfields, playground structures and other features including a retail operation for use by people of all abilities.

The York County Disabilities Foundation has been spearheading a community fund-raising campaign for the park and is coordinating the park construction.  The City of Rock Hill is funding initial infrastructure improvements, including a parking lot and restrooms.  The City’s Parks, Recreation and Tourism Department will maintain the park and manage programming for the facility.
