Carolina Lily
3 x 3 quilt block

The Carolina Lily quilt block dates to the 1830‘s and is a pattern that varies in design and in name.

 

The beautiful floral motif complements both the vitality and the tranquility of Brookwood Park, some 14 acres, located in the City of Landrum adjacent to Highway 14, also known as East Rutherford Street.

 

The park area originally contained a small lake at the rear of the property near Brookwood Drive.  For a short period this area was also used a dumping ground.   

 

Maintained for a number of years by the Spartanburg County Parks and Recreation Commission, the park grounds, at one time,  included a swimming pool, tennis courts and a putt-putt golf course.  The picnic shelter was built in 1984.

 

The City of Landrum began developing the front of the park around 2001 by adding a playground and a gazebo. In 2007 the city created a half-mile walking trail in the central portion of the park which had been overgrown with kudzu.

 

The S. C. Department of Parks, Recreation and Tourism and the Mary Black Foundation assisted the city with funding.

Several exercise stations were then added at the southern end, along with picnic tables and benches.
