Irmo Community Park brings the town together
IRMO, S.C. — Down a hidden street in the heart of Irmo sits the Irmo Community Park. It’s 16 acres of playgrounds, trees, flowers and more.
Our Street Squad met with the Director of Public Services, Whitt Cline, to learn more about the area that makes the town more special.
“There was no where else in town to take your kids to a playground or just to get out and walk around. So it’s kind of become a meeting place for the town residents,” Cline said.

While honoring the late Al Karst, a well-known and respected citizen of the Town of Irmo, Brian Pena of The Karate Dojo was able to gather 12 Chiefs of Police and Sheriff Leon Lott for the ceremony.
A historic moment, that goes back several decades! We can only imagine the stories they could tell.
