Parks and recreation areas
- Blenheim Mineral Springs
This mineral spring, from which you can still drink, was discovered in 1781 by James Spears. Over the years, water from this location has been used in the manufacturing of the famous Blenheim Ginger Ale. Next to the springs, you can see the old bottling plant building.
- Lake Paul Wallace Park
Located just north of downtown Bennettsville, Lake Paul Wallace and the surrounding area offer a wide variety of recreational activities. The lake is divided into three parts. The swimming and boating side has a one-mile skiing channel, grassy terraces, and white sandy beaches for swimming. Across a dike is the larger fishing and sailing portion, which is stocked with fish. The third portion of the lake lies north of Beauty Spot Road and is the reservoir for the City of Bennettsville's water system, as well as a waterfowl refuge with Canadian Geese, ducks, coots, mergansers, and herons.
