Plans have been unveiled and contractors selected for a new, large park in Mount Pleasant.

Liollio Architecture and SeamonWhiteside, along with their team of local engineers, have been selected to provide planning, architectural and engineering services for the newest park in Mount Pleasant, according to a news release.

Once complete, the hundred-acre Rifle Range Road Park will be an expansive community park that will provide a balance of passive and active spaces, the release stated.

The design team is led by Liollio in partnership with SeamonWhiteside, according to the release. The team will collaborate closely with Mount Pleasant leadership on master planning and site programming through construction to completion. Liollio will oversee overall project management and architectural design for a new recreation and community center. SeamonWhiteside will assist in master planning, landscape architecture, and civil engineering services.

“The Liollio Team is committed to working with the Town of Mount Pleasant to provide a world-class community park experience on Rifle Range Road for decades to come, and we are thrilled to continue our collaboration with SW+,” Andy Clark, principal at Liollio Architecture, said in the release. “Many of our team members call Mount Pleasant home, and we feel a strong sense of stewardship and responsibility for giving back to our community.”

Connected to Mount Pleasant Way, just north of Six Mile Road, the Rifle Range Road Park will add much-needed recreational amenities to the Town of Mount Pleasant and the surrounding neighborhoods, the release stated. It will feature soccer fields, tennis courts, pickleball courts, beach volleyball courts, and outdoor basketball courts.

In addition to these sporting components, a performance stage, grand lawn, picnic pavilions, playground, dog park and walking trails are in the plans, with a central community building tying it all together, the release stated. The community building will provide a two-court basketball gymnasium, a walking track, and studios for community music, art, dance and camp activities.

“Making a lasting impact on the community in which we live is a huge source of pride for us here at SeamonWhiteside,” says Gary Collins, vice president at SeamonWhiteside. “Not only are we excited for our employees to join neighbors and friends in experiencing the park once complete, but we’re also excited to continue working alongside Liollio on another successful project here in the Charleston area.”

Rifle Range Road Park will be adjacent to wetlands and natural areas and located and within walking distance of many residential communities.

The partnership between Liollio and SeamonWhiteside will provide efficiency and cohesiveness, the release stated. The two firms have worked together on previous projects, including Ashley River Park.
