Construction will begin soon on a new park in Gaffney that will be the new home of the South Carolina Peach Festival.

City council approved, paying nearly 1.5 million dollars to build Railroad Avenue Park.
That’s $200,000 more than planned.

The park will have a 3000 seat amphitheater.

Construction should begin in December and be ready by June in time for next year’s festival.
