Town of Ridgeland Wins Municipal Association Award

     The Town of Ridgeland has won the Municipal Association of South Carolina's Achievement Award for Economic Development with it entry for Tuten Park.  Previous winners of this award include Myrtle Beach, Charleston, and Columbia.

     Tuten Park is a small area between businesses near Exit 21 off Interstate 95. 


The area was previously an unmaintained drainage ditch fenced off for safety reasons. Now the Town's newest park offers a respite for weary travellers.  Numerous plantings soften the appearance while the brick walls and pavers connect it to the existing Town sidewalk system.  A fountain and heron sculptures also lead visitors to the Blue Heron Nature Trail just to the north.
