    Magnificent
    What a magnificent park. This is one of the most beautiful parks we have ever been to. It is not just the unique bridge, but the layout of the park, with so many beautiful and peaceful places to explore and , of course, the waterfalls. Greenville has done an amazing job of making its downtown appealing and vibrant , and this park is the crown jewel. We found it to be a very special place. We would return every day just to spend some time walking and then sitting on the many benches that the city provided to take it all in. No need to say more–just go and explore and enjoy.

    You just have to see it......beautifiul & magestic.
    The park and falls was as beautiful as the first time my husband and I saw it. This trip, I brought my daughter to see the falls and have lunch nearby. Sadly, the walkway over the falls was closed for repair, but we did go to the bottom of the falls and walked all over the many paths to see it in different angles. It was beautiful and she was so impressed. A very enjoyable time and hoping that our next visit we will be able to go out on the bridge overlooking the falls for a different view. Spectacular as usual.

    A lovely space, make sure you have time
    This is a truly wonderful park. There are spaces for a leisurely stroll, to connect up to the greenway, to chill in the river, to walk up to restaurants. The park has clean restrooms with water, plenty of places to sit and relax, gardens to enjoy, and access to downtown. You can pop in for 15 minutes, but could easily spent a pleasant 3-4 hours.

    Breathtaking; keep coming back!
    My favorite park in SC. Husband proposed here more than 20 years ago and we keep coming back. Perfect to meander all day, and there are many spots to sit and take in the view. Also walking distance to lots of restaurants and shops.

    Stunning park!
    This is an absolutely beautiful park! We Definitely spend some time here while in Greenville. It’s located right on Main St. and has a number of pathways to walk along. The waterfalls are beautiful and many seem to enjoy playing in the river.

    Take time to enjoy nature in downtown Greenville
    On a hot July day in Greenville, walking around this area was a refreshing treat! The views were great from a variety of paths and it’s nice to be able to spend a little or a lot of time here. Ramps made it accessible and seating options were scattered throughout.

    Don’t miss this great part of Greenville!
    This was our first visit to Greenville, SC, having recently retired here from the Northeast. I am a huge fan of waterfalls and loved being able to visit the falls right in the center of town! We enjoyed the view from Liberty Bridge, had a picnic lunch at a picnic table beside the falls, enjoyed a nice stroll along the falls, and also enjoyed a fantastic bike ride along the Falls on the Reedy on the Swamp Rabbit Trail! We will definitely be coming back to Greenville!

    Model City
    Every city should follow the Greenville model. The park in the middle of the city is beautiful and it brings everyone out to experience life. I visited it during the March Madness tournament a few years ago and I loved it so much I came back with my family.

    Reedy River Falls
    We took our dog and little girl to Falls Park on the Reedy while visiting Greenville. The waterfall is about 28-feet and quite impressive right in the middle of downtown. There is 2-hour parking at a lot as well as street parking in the area, but arriving early, around 9, we were able to park in the lot. The trails are paved and there are ramps to get around stairs so we could push our daughter in a stroller. Great views of the waterfall from the trails and Liberty Bridge. The longer distance Swamp Rabbit Trail runs through the park and we extended our hike heading down to the zoo and back. Overall, a great park and must-see if visiting Greenville.

    Nice greenspace without leaving the city
    Great place for everyone. Lots of space to walk around, run, explore, relax, enjoy the scenery. It's an oasis in the middle of the city, makes you feel like you're out in the wilderness, yet you're right by all kinds of restaurants and downtown happenings.

The hidden gem in the heart of Greenville, Falls Park on the Reedy is everything a park should be.

We entered the park by way of Pedrick Garden at Falls Park, walked over a small bridge and down a side road to the park.  We were able to get a great view of Liberty Bridge and could hear the falls.

Surrounded by restaurants, cafes and hotels all within walking distance, Falls Park boasts lush greenery lined paved walkways with benches and swings to sit, relax and enjoy the views and sounds of the falls.  There are large open green spaces available for kids to play, families to picnic and relax and pets to roam.

The park was busy on the Saturday we visited, yet it did not feel crowded. There was plenty of room for everyone to enjoy the area.

A true gem for nature lovers!

Take a stroll across Liberty Bridge to get the most expansive view of Reedy River Falls. Enjoy listening to the flow of water, natural white noise. From the bridge you will be able to see adults, kids, and dogs on the rocks below enjoying the shallow areas of the falls.

We were not able to fully explore the area to our liking due to our time constraints.

So we look forward to returning for a long weekend to explore this amazing park, the Greenville downtown and the surrounding areas soon.

My conference didn't start until 10 am so I utilized my free time to walk this wonderful downtown. I thoroughly enjoyed the park. It was clean, green and just a great place to spend a beautiful morning!

My friends and I took our first trip to Greenville and stayed in a downtown hotel. We were thrilled to have this park just a few blocks away. We walked through it, over the suspension bridge, sat on the swing bench and picked up some gelato to eat while looking at the waterfall. We talked with a local playing with his dog and enjoyed the early spring flowers. Great place to enjoy!

We stopped here for a visit after walking on the swamp rabbit trail. Very nice enjoyable morning, maybe a little cooler than I'm used to being from Southern California but very scenic and well worth the visit.
