Corner Icon  History of Myrtle Beach Recreation...  The Recreation Department was formed by an act of the SC General Assembly in 1947.  The governing body was a commission, and the source of revenue was a 10 mill property tax assessment.  James Bryan was the chairman.  The members were Pete Bennet, P.G. Winstead, Ernie Southernland and Ernest Williams.  Ray Dean was the first director and ran the recreation program after teaching school and on weekends.  Harry Pacone replaced him in 1950 for one year.  Dean returned for six months.  Frank Beckham became Parks and Recreation Director in 1951 and held the position until his death in 1987.  Jimmie Walters became director in 1988 and served until retiring in 2010.  During his tenure, the  department's name was changed to Cultural and Leisure Services.  Today, the department has more than 100 full- and part-time staff.
