Park Rendering 1

It's one thing to be recognized as the "Number One Place to Live in South Carolina" by Money Magazine. It's another thing to ensure residents of all ages and abilities have access to high-quality experiences that provide the chance to develop a fit, healthy lifestyle and inclusive frame of mind.

Central Creek Park, located at 147 Old Moncks Corner Road, will be the flagship experience in the City's ongoing commitment to serving our community with excellent health, wellness, recreation, and social activities that enhance our awareness, connectivity, and quality of life.

It's where we will #recandrise together.

Eubanks Volleyball and Basketball Courts

The Volleyball and Basketball Area at Central Creek Park is named in honor of Edmond Eubanks. Mr. Eubanks was a longtime member of the Goose Creek Recreation Commission, and played a crucial role in the original construction of the Casey Community Center. He is recognized as leader who cared deeply about the kids of Goose Creek, and we are proud that Goose Creek Recreation’s newest complex will forever bear his name.  

Other popular components of the park include a walking trail, a food truck court, and a field and stage for community concerts and organized sports and wellness activities. The activity space will span 3.84 acres and accommodate 600+ people comfortably with parking for 202 and ADA parking for 31 with 16 van-accessible spots.
