KNOWLEDGE PARK WILL BE A SUCCESS IF:
The major activity centers of Knowledge Park are linked together by a seamless web of pedestrian, bicycle, transit, and automobile connections.
SAFE, SEAMLESS connections are provided to bring residents and visitors to – and move them through - the Knowledge Park area.
This can be accomplished by focusing in 4 areas:
Complete the Pedestrian Overpass at Dave Lyle Blvd – this is vital to connecting Winthrop and University Center to Downtown and Fountain Park in a safe and inviting way.
Install wayfinding signage to include an app, maps and signs showing visitors and residents how to navigate KP. Parking areas, walking and biking paths and transit routes should be highlighted.
Support and promote the transit system as a way to connect Rock Hill residents to Knowledge Park – as well as a viable transportation option for tourists.
Construct separate bicycle and walking pathways where possible.
Connect existing pathways in surrounding neighborhoods into KP pathway system.
Use lighting and pavement marking to clearly indicate pathways.
