Travelers Rest has an abundance of local parks and open spaces to improve the physical and psychological health of its residents, strengthen our community and make our city and neighborhoods great places to live and work. Below we’ve listed parks that are participating in the 2021 Park Hop:

Poinsett Park includes a picnic shelter, playground, walking trail and open green space that’s perfect for outdoor recreation. The walking trail is ¼ mile long and surrounds the playground giving visitors the opportunity to get some exercise while keeping an eye on the children.
