Ribbon-Cutting - Kingston Lot

IMG_1626-2

A ribbon-cutting ceremony was recently held to celebrate the newly upgraded Kingston Lot.
In 2017, Conway began reimagining our public spaces, starting with Norman Alley and continuing through Kingston Park, Garden Walk, Teal Alley, the Terrace, and the green space restoration at the Old Tennis Center. Last year, we celebrated the Scarborough Alley renovations and unveiled countless murals. Each improvement brought new energy and investment.

The Kingston Lot is our latest transformation. Previously just a parking area, it’s now a beautiful public space, enhancing safety and aesthetics around Kingston and Fourth Avenue. As we near the completion of the Riverwalk Extension, these improvements are essential for a safer, more attractive environment for our pedestrians.Final March 2023 Kingston LotIMG_1624

With support from the Municipal Assn of SC #strongsccities Hometown Economic Development Grant, we constructed an innovative Environmental Refuse Facility (ERF), blending functionality with design. The gateway sign, LED-backlit and customizable, adds a welcoming touch, while stormwater gardens and landscaping promote sustainability.
