Mauldin residents will soon have a new place to escape the summer heat on the Mauldin Cultural Center campus. On Tuesday, City Council approved a lease to allow the successful Ice Cream Station of Simpsonville to open their second location in the Log Cabin on the Cultural Center campus. The cabin will undergo moderate renovation to accommodate its first residents in decades.
“We’re super excited for the opportunity.” said Serge Guillot, owner of the Ice Cream Station.
The Ice Cream Station is known for more than scoops and shakes. The prices are affordable, attracting both families and large groups. The result is a fun atmosphere that is a big part of the culture in the city’s downtown. The cabin is ideal for recreating the Ice Cream Station vibe in Mauldin, and will be a convenient way to cool off during summer concerts at the Cultural Center.
There are other major improvements planned for the Mauldin Cultural Center, also addressed in the council meeting:
• A new picnic area for residents will be funded by the Rotary Club of Mauldin
• Construction to begin at the George Bomar Family Picnic Shelter
• Two age appropriate playgrounds are slated to open in late summer, 2017
