So much to do. The playgrounds are great, there are plenty of Fields for the kids to play soccer and the trails are easy to navigate and follow. Our entire family always enjoys Lake Conestee!

We walked loops 1 and 2. Not sure how to get to loop 3 or 4. Trails are pretty well marked with planks in some areas of muddiness. It was a nice way to spend the time outside.

My wife and I along with our dog Lady love to hike this park. We always see a lot of wildlife: Canadian geese, Great Blue Heron, ducks, turtles, squirrels, hawks, beavers and many other variety of birds. The hikes have interesting terrain: river, lake, ponds, swamp, wetlands, meadows and forrested uplands. Hikes are generally shaded. After a rain you may... More

I went to the park for the express purpose of finding some geocaches. I spent over an hour on Heron Loop reading the signs about the fauna and flora in the area and the history of the park. The trails are not steep and easy to move on. There is some walking on raised boards to avoid mud and standing... More

A wonderful Park with much wildlife and flora and some of the best trails in the area. Lake Conestee is a gem! With the developing links to the Swamp Rabbit Trail and the well designed sports fields this Park will be a prime must visit spot for anyone visiting Greenville SC.

My husband and I love visited places that alot of people don't know about.That is how we ended up here.We enjoyed the flat boardwalk area, and had a fantastic time watching a pair of blue herons as they fed their baby in a nest. We would have stayed all afternoon if it weren't for the pesky mosquitoes. And that we... More

The park highlights the remnants of a lake. The Reedy River flows through the park, but the park centers on what used to be Lake Conestee. Silt has filled in most of the old lake bottom creating a number of islands and cut-offs such that it is more like a collection of ponds. I have seen deer, snakes, turtles, and... More

I did not like the sewer smell around the park, but this was a good experience. A great hike for those who like to hike, bike, and or bird watch.

We love riding the dirt trails and the Swamp rabbit extension with our 6 year old. It's fun watching the park change through the seasons!

Cannot believe it took me this long to hear about this place. If you like walking or even biking on nature trails this place is for you. Great for all ages - relatively flat - there are hills here and there but not terrible. Unbelievable how much wild life you will see. We have walked this 3 times now in... More
