Marlboro County Parks and Recreation Commission plans and develops activities for the entire county sponsoring sports leagues, clinics, classes and other events. There are tennis, volleyball and basketball courts, football, baseball, and soccer fields, community centers, parks with playground equipment and a horse arena.

Lake Paul Wallace, one of the area’s principal recreational attractions, is a 600 acre man-made lake with separate sections for fishing, swimming, boating, water skiing along with a water fowl refuge.

Hunters can enjoy dove shooting, and duck, deer, quail and small game are abundant. Private clubs offer swimming, tennis and golfing.


The Marlboro Arts Council, officially established in February 1970, has served as the leader in coordinating and facilitating community arts events.

The Marlboro Civic Center, in downtown Bennettsville, is the area’s performing arts center and offers a variety of plays, concerts and other performances during the year.
