MYRTLE BEACH, SC (WBTW) – A park has been dedicated to the city of Myrtle Beach Tuesday to be used as a city park and part of the city’s stormwater management system.

The Robert Shelley Family donated property at 405 Balsam Street. The city’s plans call for green space and public park improvements, as well as a stormwater detention pond.  According to the county council, a small playground already on the property will be improved in time.  

The land will be known as “Shelley Park,” in honor and remembrance of the family and its contributions to the city throughout the years.  

Council members were set to unveil the park sign during Tuesday’s event, with additional improvements to follow at a later date.
