NEWBERRY — The winner of the second “Where’s Super Johnnie?” challenge is Tony Chapman for correctly identifying Kendall Park.
Located at the corner of Milligan and Glenn streets, Kendall Park was once the site of the Mollohon Manufacturing Co. from 1921 to 1926 when it was sold to the Kendall Co. The mill closed in 1976. The park is a part of the historical Mollohon Mill and Village and is next to Mollohon Park. The former mill office still stands on the site.
The area at one time included Mollohon School, a pavilion and a bandstand. The property was deeded to the city from the Kendall Co. in 1980. The park now has a ball field and a basketball court. The Kendall Park Tennis Courts once on the site have been removed and have been replaced with a football field that will be home to Newberry Youth Football games beginning in the fall.
Other parks to visit this week:
• Mollohon Park, 211 Player S., has a playground, shelter and bathroom
• Wells Japanese Garden, 1608 Lindsay St., has a unique Japanese themed tranquil park
• Lake Greenwood State Park, 302 State Park Road in Ninety Six
