Herdklotz Park

This beautiful park has a higher elevation and offers lovely views of both the downtown Greenville skyline to the south and the peak of Paris Mountain to the north.

With two multi-purpose athletic fields, Herdklotz Park has plenty of green space for most every sport. The two play structures are a favorite among Greenville youngsters, and have been listed among the County's top playgrounds by Kidding Around Greenville. Nearby the playground area is a volleyball court, two horseshoe courts, and a walking trail. There is even a small shelter for parties of 12 guests and a large shelter for groups of up to 80.

Not only is Herdklotz a pretty place to spend your day, it also has a rich local history. The site was once home to the Hopewell Sanatorium, a nationally acclaimed hospital for patients with tuberculosis. Remains of the root cellar were saved during park construction and signage around the park offers visitors historical insights into an era that spanned the early 1900s. After the hospital was damaged by a fire, the County decided to use the land to improve the community in a new way—by building a park!
