Spartanburg has demonstrated its ability to offer great public, private and nonprofit partnerships and the recent partnership with Central United Methodist Church is no exception.
Pastor Tom Norrell and Lay Leader John Simmons will be liaising with the community to bring a new public park behind the church.
The park will feature a brick inlaid labyrinth and an amphitheater and will link the church and downtown standard bearers such as the Marriott, Chapman Cultural Center, and George Dean Johnson Jr. College of Business and Economics.
Among others that will soon occupy downtown space are the redeveloped Montgomery Building, the Gibb's five-story mixed-use office development, and a planned 200-unit apartment development.
