The Burton Center Foundation is currently building an accessible fishing pond and pavilion on its Greenwood campus adjacent to the Miracle League field and Sensory Park.  Fuji provided the funding for the one and half-acre pond and covered pavilion. DSP Architects are designing the covered pavilion and related access walkways.

"The accessible fishing pond and pavilion is an exciting addition to the Burton Center campus in Greenwood," said Lisa Emily, Senior Public Relations Specialist for FUJIFILM Manufacturing U.S.A., Inc.  "Fujifilm continues to enjoy a strong partnership with the Burton Center, and this project is more evidence of it," Emily stated.

First Presbyterian Church’s Endowment is providing the funding for the security fencing and required accessible gates.  Glenda Davis, Vice Chair of the First Presbyterian Church Missions Committee noted, “Our church has a special interest in this project.  In 2012, our Presbyterian Women applied for a Thank Offering Grant from Creative Ministries of Presbyterian Women.  The grant was awarded and it helped fund the Sensory Park with Therapeutic Trails.  The pond will provide additional opportunities to individuals with disabilities and special needs.”

The projected completion date for the pond and pavilion is this summer.  Fishing should begin in the summer of 2019 after the stocked fish have grown to regulation size.

“We are very excited about this project.  The accessible pond and pavilion will provide the opportunity for people with disabilities to enjoy fishing and spending time outdoors,” stated Jimmy Burton, Executive Director of Burton Center.
