The first park would be placed in front of Town Hall, where there is currently a small parking lot. Parking would still be available along Highway 290 and in nearby lots.
The second park is planned at 150 Leonard St. where Spartanburg County District 5 Sports and Activities Council owns a building surrounded by a grass field.
The proposed budgets for the two parks, streetscape and more could top $1.5 million with potential funding coming from different community funds, grants, the Mary Black Foundation and the South Carolina Department of Transportation - if approved.
The plans were first presented in January by Raleigh-based Stewart Inc. and have been supported by nonprofit Upstate Forever, city government and funding from Mary Black Foundation.
