This impressive recreational and research complex surrounds Winthrop Lake and is located
approximately one mile from the university’s main campus. Facilities include the Winthrop
Coliseum, as well as baseball, softball, tennis, soccer and track complexes, an outdoor
education center, protected Piedmont wetlands and several recreational fields. A challenging
18-hole disc golf course has been the site of U.S. and World Disc Golf championships. A driving
range, where visitors may hit and retrieve their own golf balls, is located near the Winthrop
Ballpark. The one-mile loop around the lake is one of approximately five miles of walking and
bike trails that crisscross the complex and conveniently connect to Rock Hill’s public trails.
