Listed in alphabetical order. Originally posted January 2021. Updated April 2022.

9374 Founders St., Fort Mill

This hidden gem of a park is tucked away beneath a tree canopy in Baxter Village - yay for shade! I accidentally stumbled upon it while walking the nature trails so it's easy to miss. You'll find swings, slides, climbing features, plus some adult exercise equipment.

No restrooms.

1905 N. Dobys Bridge Rd., Fort Mill

Located near Dobys Bridge Road neighborhoods between Putnam Lane and Fort Mill Pkwy, this 14-acre park offers two playgrounds nestled within three baseball fields. We love that it also has plenty of picnic tables under a shaded pavilion.

Restrooms are available.

465 Harris St., Fort Mill

This 10-acre park with a lit baseball field and basketball court also has a playground including slides, swings, see-saws, a merry-go-round, and sandbox. There are grills as well as a gazebo with a large picnic table, and a shaded area with two smaller picnic tables. A paved bike trail runs from here to Walter Y. Elisha Park. Restrooms are available.

104 Spratt St., Fort Mill

Overlooking Main Street Fort Mill, it's the perfect spot to play and view the trains passing through town. The playground has swings and slides, and you'll also find a walking trail, a couple of picnic tables, and three bench swings to relax on as you overlook downtown. This park is a short walk to local dining establishments such as Improper Pig, Hobo's, Towne Tavern, and Z Bakery.

No restrooms.

1307 Riverwalk Parkway, Rock Hill

Too close to Fort Mill not to mention. This fenced in playground is located in the Riverwalk neighborhood across from the BMX track. It has equipment for all ages (even a toddler playground) for kids to ride, slide, or climb, musical equipment, and a one-of-a-kind zip line. The only drawback is that there isn't any shade.

No restrooms.

600 Steele St., Fort Mill

This is a 5-acre park located in the Steele Street neighborhood. In addition to the playground it also has a lit basketball court, picnic tables (including one large table under shelter), a grill, and a splash pad (open from Memorial Day to the second week of September)!
