This wildlife sanctuary contains hardwood and mixed forests, extensive wetlands, 3 miles of the Reedy River, and a rich diversity of wildlife habitat. Deer, raccoon, beaver, fox, river otter, and various small mammals inhabit the park, along with numerous species of reptiles and amphibians. Over 197 bird species have been reported by the Greenville County Bird Club. The park has been designated as an Important Bird Area of Global Significance by the National Audubon Society.

  • You'd never think you're so close to the city. The nature trails here are sublime. Paved walkways and dirt trails available for all walking and bike enthusiasts. I try to come at least once a week just to clear my mind and take in all the beautiful sights. So grateful to have this place so close to home.
  • Best public park ever. It has lots of parking lots a huge tent with more than enough tables, a decent playground for kiddos and an incredible forest with lots of trails. It is so worthy to take the opportunity and spend time here with the family.
  • Beautiful and well maintained. Perfect for a stroll or picnic with the family. Great dog park for both big and small...but its all dirt and mulch so be prepared for the pooch to get dirty.
  • Refreshing place to visit nearby greenville, a day full of activity, there was a carnival type for some group if people. We enjoyed watching it
  • Great for walking or running. Picnic area and clean restrooms. There is also a dog parks!
