Cherry Park – Rock Hill, South Carolina
South Carolina | SC Picture Project | York County Photos | Cherry Park
Cherry Park in Rock Hill is one of South Carolina‘s most popular public parks. Known for its unrivaled softball and baseball facilities, it’s the second sports venue to be inducted into the National Softball Association’s Hall of Fame. This 68-acre park also includes playgrounds, five multipurpose fields, lighted trails, and picnic areas.
At the entrance of the park stands a 14-foot bronze statue by Mark Lundeen of “Mighty Casey,” the fictional slugger made famous by Ernest Thayer in his 1888 poem, Casey at the Bat: A Ballad of the Republic Sung in the Year 1888. Go here to learn more about the poem and read it in its entirety.
SCIWAY would like to thank Carol Gant of Rock Hill for submitting this picture she took in 2004.
