  • We have come to really enjoy this airplane themed park! My youngest is very much into planes, so being able to play AND watch local planes takeoff is a win-win for us! There is a nice picnic shelter that can accommodate several people. It can be reserved for special occasions, just contact the Greenville Rec. Otherwise, there are some benches but without shade. This park is not well shaded, so plan accordingly. Make sure you bring any ride on toys for the little ones, there is a path for it! Everything is fenced in but the entrance is not gated. Have lunch at The Runway Cafe right next to it for a full aviary experience!
  • Great place for kids to play and watch small planes take off and land. The day we were there, someone was taking lessons and doing multiple take-offs and touch-down landings, so lots of activity. Also, the bi-plane picked up a passenger right at the park. If you go during the summer, go in the early morning as there is no shade on the playground. The restaurant is right there or there is a large covered shelter for picnics.
  • We appreciate this park and the location is absolutely perfect for us. I only wish that more people would fund the park so that coverings can be put up. The equipment gets extremely hot in the sun and makes it unsafe for use after a long hot day.
  • My kids love it because they get to see the planes take off and land. And every once in a while we'll eat at the Runway Cafe.
  • This park was my favorite while in Greenville. It's Airport-themed and you can watch small planes takeoff and land just a few hundred yards away. Let your kids ride their bike around the track that circles the park and definitely encourage them to run up the "runway" that goes right through the middle of the park. My two girls loved it here.
