  • Great place to kill some time and get some fresh air. There are plaques sharing historical information and a ton of great places to take pictures. Runners and walkers will enjoy this area, but it does get congested with sight-seers. If you want to get lunch, chill for drinks, or just grab a quick coffee, there are quite a few places to choose from. Posted signage will keep you from getting lost, or help you find the public restroom. It's a dog-friendly area, too!
  • Beautiful park with great scenery. Place of open spots to either just lounging around or set up a picnic. On the suspension bridge is the good spot that overlooks the park and the calm flowing waterfall. There also of plenty restaurants close by if you get hungry.
  • This is a beautiful park (not to be confused with playground, they don't have one there), BUT this is a great place for families and singles alike. The waterfall is impressive. The bridge has a great view. There are bench swings scattered all over the park and plenty of grass area for picnics or running around. "Shakespeare in the Park" is our favorite event held here. By day, it's a great hangout spot for friends and family and by night, it's a romantic and quiet place to sit or stroll with a date. There are several coffee and ice cream shops nearby as well as all the amenities of downtown Greenville. We love that this park connects to Cleveland Park by way of the Swamp Rabbit Trail, we like to bike and walk between the two, there are places to picnic in between and it makes for the perfect weekend outing.
  • What a fantastic place, and to be right in the middle of the city. My gripe is that it is NOT handicapped friendly. You need to take a seedy elevator and get out facing a dark place even in the daytime. The restaurant makes use of the space outside of it's door. But everything else outshines and makes up for that bad experience, each time I try to enjoy the park. Of course the falls are stunning, but so are the gorgeous flowers during the spring and summer months. Great place for family fun. Used to enjoy the ducks until they closed the road to automobile traffic :(
  • My favorite place to visit in Greenville. The park and the bridge are incredibly photogenic. There's usually peddlers and street performers on the weekends. There's an older gentleman that plays his guitar each night in the roundabout before you traverse the bridge. He plays for tips and is a treat to listen to. A great place to walk around and the Swamp Rabbit trail runs through the park so bikers and hikers have something available to them at the park.

Where to stay in Greenville

Greenville's main street is home to a few historical hotels with elegant lobbies and rooms that recall the opulence of the early 20th century. Chain hotels with both standard rooms and suites are scattered throughout the city and near the airport. To be close to nature without sacrificing the city, consider a lodge or cabin in one of the nearby national parks.
