ROCK HILL, S.C. – What’s now 15 acres of mostly dirt in Rock Hill will soon become the area’s only large-scale, inclusive sports park.
Miracle Park will be a unique place for athletes of all ages and abilities.
Josh Myers, 31, is a world gold medalist weightlifter in the Special Olympics.

On Wednesday, he stood with hundreds of others outside the Winthrop Coliseum, to help break ground on something he never imagined as a kid.
“I’m so excited for the opportunity for all kids,” Myers told the crowd, which included the state’s governor, a congressman and other dignitaries.

Patti Myers is Josh’s mother. She’s watched him grow up competing in Special Olympics and in the World Games last year. She’s also a special education teacher in Clover.
“We cannot wait for Miracle Park to be open,” she said. “This is a great opportunity for Rock Hill.”
