About Why Greenville is Booming


Ranked as one of the nation’s “Top 10 U.S. Parks” along with Golden Gate Park and Central Park, Falls Park on The Reedy is the true hub of downtown activity and the gateway to the burgeoning West End. This 32-acre gem is home to the pedestrian-only Liberty Bridge, the only single-sided suspension bridge in the Western Hemisphere. This graceful span provides spectacular views of the expanding city skyline as well as the picturesque Reedy River Falls below.

The park itself boasts a bustling network of pedestrian pathways that weave their way past cozy outdoor amphitheaters that host everything from concerts and festivals to Moonlight Movies and Shakespeare in the Park. Those same paths also connect Falls Park on the Reedy to nearby Cleveland Park. Created in 1928, this 122-acre treasure welcomes residents and visitors alike with everything from picnic tables and tennis courts to a fitness trail and softball fields. The park is also home to the Greenville Zoo where giraffes, monkeys, and more are waiting to bid you a wild welcome. You’ll also find the start of the Prisma Health Swamp Rabbit Trail, a world-class, 23-mile bike and walking path.

Have a passion for the arts? Then enjoy the gallery that is Greenville itself! Art In Public Places is a citywide program that has now placed 125+ pieces all over downtown. Everywhere you look, there’s something sensational to see!
