The Tega Cay City Council says yes to the first reading to annex Duke Energy property near the Lake Wylie Dam. The annexation will add two large parcels of land to the city to help complete a 80 acre Catawba River Park plan. The park will be located south of New Grayrock Road.
Drake Capital donated approx 10 acres for the park. The rest of the land for the park will be leased from Duke Energy.
The city is planning a
- Four baseball fields
- Walking trails
- Multipurpose fields
- Disc golf course
- Fishing piers
- Canoe and kayak launch
- Parking lot
- Dog park which is already in place.
The city hopes to raise money from state and federal grants, private donations, and use hospitality tax revenue.
The Central Bark dog park was relocated recently to the 10 acres that is already in the city limits. The city of Tega Cay hopes to begin engineering plans and permitting for the rest of the 10 acres but estimates it could take as much as 18 months to complete the initial phase while the city continues planning, fund raising, permitting, etc for the 70 acres.
