The Horry County Parks & Open Space Board is finalizing an update to the Horry County Park & Open Space Plan. The plan addresses current demand for recreation facilities and highlights areas of the County to focus conservation efforts. The plan also accounts for future population growth and development trends. Community input has been obtained through a county-wide survey and numerous focus groups. A draft of the plan can be found HERE.
