Parks Projects

Track the progress of $2.8 million in park improvements at more than 20 locations throughout the city!

With 39 parks occupying more than 400 acres of land within the city, Greenville’s green spaces and recreation opportunities are among the amenities that set us apart from other communities. And while it is important to create new spaces and opportunities as our city grows, we are committed to ensuring that our existing parks remain attractive and inviting and that quality public amenities are available to residents in every neighborhood in the city.

To that end, through the Neighborhood Parks Program (NPP) initiative, the City is investing $2.8 million to make targeted improvements in neighborhood parks. A total of 24 park spaces will be upgraded, with improvements ranging from lighting, fencing and trail/court resurfacing to the construction of new restrooms and the installation of new playground equipment. The NPP funding will also be used for large-scale projects like development of the former Cleveland Park Stables property, creation of an updated master plan for Cleveland Park and the repair/replacement of several pedestrian bridges in McPherson Park.
