  • I can see why people rate the Falls so highly. This is a magnificent spot; an arboretum with dramatic rocks and waterfalls. Lots of ducks and Canadian geese hang out here (careful about the poop on th...  more »

  • 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!
  • 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 :(
  • Love the winding paths in the piedmont garden section. Main Park area has wonderful landscaping with plenty of seating but it can be crowded at times. The waterfalls are impressive and the bridge is a sight in itself. Pokemon Go stops and gyms are present... Good place for water types.
  • This park is very well kept by the city of Greenville. Make sure if you are visiting or even a local to walk around the park. Take a picnic and enjoy all the people watching!
