A great day in the neighborhood

May 1, 2013 

Wednesday was a beautiful day to be outside. Add a ribbon cutting and some 521 BBQ at Walnut Creek’s new park, and you had paradise right here in Indian Land.

The new park is a 60-acre focal point for the community, whether folks are participating in organized sports or just enjoying being outdoors. The park is fun for all ages. There are baseball and softball fields, soccer fields, tennis courts, playgrounds and walking trails that will have access to the Carolina Thread Trail, a regional network that will ultimately reach 15 counties.

Larry McCullough, chairman of the Lancaster County Council, presented Walnut Creek with a proclamation, which read in part, “Walnut Creek: a miraculous makeover has benefited not only the residents but also Lancaster County as a whole through the Walnut Creek EMS station, Walnut Creek Park and Recreation Center and the initial segments of the Carolina Thread Trail in Lancaster County.”

Walnut Creek Park’s opening represents the completion of a project abandoned by the former Edenmoor developers when they walked away from the project in 2009. This part sat in limbo for almost two years.

The L-Star partners Steve Vining and Kyle Cockum, the new developers, renamed the community and took the bull by the horns. They kept their promise and certainly lived up to all expectations and more.

What a great place!

It was a great day for the many who attended and there was a good feeling to know that Indian Land is on the move in a new direction.
