The Greenville Downtown Airport's park, which is free to use and open to the public, has an educational amphitheater, exercise "Perimeter Taxiway" and walking "Runways", as well as aviation themed playground equipment, a swing set, a Bi-plane "Climber", a picnic hangar and a Cessna 310 static display. A 15-foot cross section of a Boeing 737 fuselage is in the process of being transformed into a handicapped accessible park entrance. In the future, we will add education of aviation signs to the park! We plan to cover items like: What runway markings mean, about air traffic controllers language, how aircraft achieve flight, about the Boeing fuselage entrance, Cessna 310 on display, parts of aircraft, careers and education in the aviation industry, General Aviation aircraft uses, gauges on aircraft instrument panels, how weather affects flight, local aviation history, types of aircraft, airport items like: Windsock, how planes "park" (on apron and tied down) etc... The South Carolina Aeronautics Commission, South Carolina Aviation Association, Michelin and Lockheed Martin have pledged generous donations to help us with this part of the park project! We are now applying for grants, planning more fundraisers and seeking financial help to add park restrooms and the paving of the park's parking lot.

This is a great location for the kids to play and has a very convenient restaurant next to it for food needs. The kids love to see the planes take off and land. The only con is that the only shade is the new picnic shelter. I recommend and early or late visit. Avoid the heat of the day during... More

We take our grandchildren here whenever they are in town. The small park is fun for young children. The equipment is limited but sufficient and they like the asphalt paved path within the park. the restaurant is enjoyable for a light meal while watching the planes take off and land. We will continue to frequent the restaurant and park.

Lots of kids having a great time. Pack some drinks because there's little shade and the machine is expense. We saw a few planes take off but the kids enjoyed the playground just as much.

A great place to have corporate events or to take your kids to watch the airplanes take off. The airport park is a great place to spend a summer or fall evening!

What a great little park, and it was really cool to watch the planes land and take off. I would have given it a 5 star rating but there is little to no shade.

This is a really well laid out childrens park. My son who is currently 2,5 loves aeroplanes, so it was great being directly on the cusp of quite a busy little airport where planes are constantly taking off and landing. there are 2 distinct areas in the park, one for older kids, one for younger ones, which is nice, as...

Cutest little park ever! My daughter (4) wants to be a pilot, so it was perfect. The place has two play areas, one for seemingly smaller children and one for the older ones. Both our kids enjoyed both (4 & 6). A little runway and a view to the airport. Super cute - I wish every airport had one of... More
