City of Myrtle Beach announces playground renovation at Futrell Park

JANUARY 11, 2023

The City of Myrtle Beach is expanding the vision at Futrell Park with a playground renovation. In addition to the planned splash pad, the current playground equipment will be demolished and replaced with an updated play area and surface. The Parks Division will install two play structures, a swing set and an artificial turf playground covering similar to what you see below. This will cost $256,000. Decorative fencing will be added around the play area to keep children safe. A Storywalk, similar to what is around the walking path at Grand Park, will also be installed.

Construction will begin for the playground and splash pad at the end of next month, and both areas are expected to have a grand opening date in April. Stay tuned!
