So many short trails, dog friendly, kid friendly urban oasis. Easy to get to, plentiful parking and playgrounds. It's not a national forest and there are no strenuous hikes but the board walks and differing terrain are hard to beat. Love this place

My mom and I went for a walk in this park today. We walked for over an hour and a half, and covered only a fraction of the area of this park. We walked through a swamp, beautiful forests and fields, across many bridges, and sat and looked across Lake Conestee. The trails were easy without any hard hills, so... More

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.
