Residents of the Town of Mount Pleasant have a new permanently-protected green space. The Town of Mount Pleasant has donated a .57-acre parcel to East Cooper Land Trust. Located at the intersection of Mathis Ferry Road and 5th Avenue, “Kenny Park” will become a public pocket park. In partnership with East Cooper Land Trust, Seamon Whiteside and Associates will be leading a community workshop and designing the park as a memorial to their founder Kenny Seamon and a place of remembrance for those who have battled cancer.
“We are very appreciative of the Town of Mount Pleasant for donating this land. Through a partnership with Seamon Whiteside, it will become a beautiful passive park in memory of Kenny Seamon who among many other things was a former Board Member of the East Cooper Land Trust.” Catherine Main, Executive Director.
East Cooper Land Trust works with willing private landowners who wish to permanently preserve the environmental, cultural or historical value of their land. To learn more about conservation easements or donate to the East Cooper Land Trust visit eastcooperland.org.
