Plans are in the works to put millions of dollars in hospitality tax revenues in the Lake Wylie-Clover area into the construction of a brand new sports park, dubbed Crowders Creek Park

Former York County Councilman Tom Smith recently told York County Council the 50-acre park, at its onset, would capitalize on the growing trend of sports tourism.

Smith and the group behind the effort want to use a portion of District Two’s contributions from the 2% hospitality tax to fund the project which could be completed with as little as $3-4 million.

Smith says the facility would serve both the community and visitors.

In the long run, Smith said, the park could pay for itself.

Smith told county council the park could eventually bring in more than $750,000 annually.

The plan now heads to the county’s hospitality tax commission for review in the next 90 days.
