The Rio del Mar Improvement Association has been actively involved with local Boy Scout Troops, community members, State Parks department and other governmental agencies to successfully complete landscape projects including the care and planting of the Esplanade palms and ground cover, along with new landscaping associated with the roundabout.
Landscaping and maintenance of Rio del Mar Blvd medians at Deer Park Shopping Center and Sumner Drive, as well as Treasure Island and Spreckles Drive, are examples of the association’s ongoing work.
Landscaping maintenance locations are:
Rio del Mar freeway exit at the Arco gas station
Rio del Mar Blvd traffic islands at Deer Park Shopping Center
Rio del Mar Blvd @ Sumner Drive island
Treasure Island and Spreckles Drive
Esplanade and the Flats roundabout
Hidden Beach Park improvements are also underway with a new ADA-compliant porta potty, new ADA-compliant and dog friendly water faucet, and refurbished tables already completed. RDMIA has led fundraising and worked with SC County Parks to complete these improvements, and additional substantial upgrades are planned pending budget allocations. Stay tuned!
