The Town of Summerville hosted a ribbon-cutting ceremony for the renovation of Hutchinson Square on Friday, March 1, 2019.
The redesign features a raised pavilion and an entrance sign over the corner of the park at Main St. and Doty Ave. The pavilion and sign were inspired by the historic train depot that existed near Hutchinson Square in the early 1900s and the archway that once spanned Main St. near Hwy. 78. The renovations include new oak trees, new landscaping, sidewalks, and a fountain. Lighting has been updated and Little Main St. was resurfaced.
Summerville Town Council approved the Hutchinson Square Revitalization Project in 2015. The project’s master plan won the Engineering Excellence Award in 2016, an annual competition that recognizes engineering achievement.
Hutchinson Square is open every day from dawn to dusk.
