Catawba Park

Catawba Park
Catawba Park is a new multi-use park and sports complex for people of all ages to enjoy. Located on New Grey Rock Road, Catawba Park is a 62 acre park on the shores of the Catawba River, including a boat launch just below the Lake Wylie dam.  The tremendous growth we have experienced in our recreation programs and use of our current recreational facilities, it was the City’s vision to create a new destination that will provide park goers with a multitude of amenities. These include baseball/softball fields, multi-purpose fields for soccer and lacrosse, a dog park, vast open spaces for community events and passive recreational opportunities, tranquil river front walking trails and an amphitheater.

In 2020, City Council voted to utilize hospitality tax funds and retired bond debt along with impact fees to fund phases I and II of Catawba Park.  The total cost of phases I and II is approximately $11 million dollars.
