Sanctified Hill Park Master Plan City of Fountain Inn, SC

Project Overview

Sanctified Hill Park is positioned as the only City of Fountain Inn Park and Recreation Facility in Laurens County and is located in the historically African-American district – Sanctified Hill. Sanctified Hill Park was originally a city landfill until its proper closing in the 1960’s. After years of clean-up and remediation, the City constructed a basketball court and parking but never provided the requested or required amenities. In one of the fastest growing areas of Fountain Inn and Laurens County, this park as become a needed amenity.

Studio Main was procured to provide master planning, public input and stakeholder coordination, and landscape architectural services. Studio Main walked the client team through a charrette process – a three-day process where Studio Main staff developed multiple concepts for review. On day three of the charrette, the Fountain Inn Police Department held a block party with free food, inflatables, music and family fun. Studio Main set up a table and tent to discuss with residents the design process and receive feedback on the multiple concepts presented. The final concept includes:

  • Parking
  • ADA accessible walking trail
  • Playgrounds (3-5/5-12)
  • Basketball courts (2)
  • Memorial plaques
  • Picnic Shelters (2)
  • Restroom
