One of Greenville’s greatest attractions is its system of city parks. The goal of the City Parks and Recreation department is to ensure that Greenville’s parks remain attractive and inviting for public use. The department oversees 39 city parks occupying more than 700 acres of land within the city. In managing Greenville’s parks, our staff provides a variety of appealing programs and activities for our residents and visitors.
Cancer Survivors Park
The Cancer Survivors Park (CSP) is designed to bring people together to share stories of survivorship – as a patient, a caregiver, a family member or someone suffering the loss of a loved one to cancer. CSP gives visitors opportunities to engage the mind, body and soul in the healing process, all in the beautiful surroundings of a city park along the Swamp Rabbit Trail.

Cleveland Park, Greenville
Considered by many to be Greenville’s City Park, this large and diverse space was created in 1922 when the Cleveland family donated 122 acres of land along the Reedy River. The park features tennis courts, a volleyball court, a softball field, playground areas, a fitness trail equipped with workout stations, and both small-group and large-group picnic shelters. In addition, Cleveland Park is the site of the Rock Quarry Garden, the Fernwood Nature Trail, the Vietnam Veterans Memorial and the Greenville Zoo. 150 Cleveland Park Dr. Greenville, SC 29601
