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 planned as a 62 acre park on the shores of the Catawba River, including a boat launch just below the Lake Wylie dam, which has become a popular paddle sports launch for the region.  

With 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 picnic gatherings and passive recreational opportunities, tranquil river front walking trails and an amphitheater.

  3. Tega Cay Forever

In April 2017, City Council approved Tega Cay Forever Committee, to serve as a fundraising arm for Catawba Park. In December 2017, Tega Cay Forever received approval from the Internal Revenue Services to operate as a 501(c)3. Tega Cay Forever has been a part of fundraising efforts such as the Forever 1982 Campaign, Taste of York County, Corporate Business Gala and the Memorial Day 5K.  In addition to these efforts they have hired Lemmonds Design to market the Facility.

In 2019 the City Council also voted to set aside impact fees to provide a revenue stream to fund Catawba Park. This funding is expect to provide approximately $4 million toward the $15 million total cost. Additional funding is being sought through community partnerships, donations, naming rights, grants and public funds in order to complete the park.
