War Memorial Park remains one of the most frequented parks in Berkeley County. The MBCPR is unwavering in its efforts to maintain and enhance this staple in the community.

During October and November, War Memorial received a new basketball court with fresh concrete pads and freshly painted lines, new backboards, and rims. The youth of the community have already been enjoying it. Tracy Snow, Director of Parks & Maintenance shares,

“At this point, we are ecstatic about the turnout, the kids absolutely love it and have been enjoying it, even as the weather has gotten cooler.”

A fence is set to be put up around the court in late December for the completion of the project. The department is also relining the court at E. Burke Street court during December as well, giving the children and teens even more opportunities to get outside and exercise.
