Grand Opening and Ribbon Cutting October 4th

Statesville, NC – Iredell County Parks, Recreation and
Facility Services Department announced today that they will host a Grand
Opening and Ribbon Cutting Ceremony at the newly renovated Scotts Rosenwald Park.  The event will take place on October 4th,
from 10:00 am – 2:00 pm, at 1374 Scotts Creek Road, Statesville, NC 28625.  Festivities will include honorary guests,
recreational activities such as soccer games, corn hole, horseshoes, and more.  Representatives from various local agencies
will be present with information and activities as well.   Hot Dogs and chips will be served to the
first 250 guests.

Additional
details may be found at the Parks and Recreation website: http://www.co.iredell.nc.us/Departments/Recreation/

 

Scotts Rosenwald School was established in 1927.  It operated as on all African American School
until 1967, when it was closed. During the fall of 1967, Iredell County declared
the Scotts Rosenwald School and grounds surplus in the Scotts Community. Two
groups were interested in purchasing the facility to develop it for recreation
purposes. The Scotts Community Development Group, a Negro group, and the Scotts
Home-makers Club, a white group, both were unsuccessful in purchasing and
developing the project within the framework of their prospective clubs. The
leaders of both clubs decided to join forces in an effort to purchase the
property and develop it into a recreation center……….

Community Rec. Center brochure; How it Began)

 

The Scotts Community Recreation Center was formed
on May 8, 1968. It was formerly the Scotts Rosenwald School.  In the fall of 2009 the Board of Directors of
the Scotts Community Recreation Center donated the recreation center and five
acres to Iredell County.

 

In 2012, Iredell County Parks and Recreation
Department applied for and was awarded a Parks and Recreation Trust Fund Grant
in the amount of $183,650.00 to make improvements to the property and refurbish
the facilities. As of June 30, 2014, a number of improvements have been
completed, including a new playground installation, refurbished basketball
courts, horse shoe pits, a new walking trail, additional picnic tables,
fencing, remodeled bathrooms and buildings and landscaping.  The Scotts Community Recreation Center is
re-named “The Scotts Rosenwald Park”.
