Owner description: 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.

“Best downtown ever!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 13, 2014

Downtown Greenville is just great. It's great if you are with kids and doing the family thing, it's great if you are having date night, it's great if you are looking to party, and it's great if you are looking for some relaxation. It has a spot just for you. The park has tons of area for the kids to run around, and with great restaurants in walking distance you can't go wrong.

“What a unique spot for kids!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 13, 2014

We love this unique playground and they are still adding on! My 3 kids (2, 4, 7) all stay busy here for hours. And I love that there is a little restaurant right there where we can grab lunch. It is so much fun the watch the planes come and go as everyone plays!

“Downtown Greenville”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 25, 2014

This is an absolutely perfect city to visit. The downtown is very clean and visitor friendly with great restaurants and plenty of things to do with a family. Not to be passed up.
