Very Good Nature Park

Close to everything in the city. Easy walk and well maintained trails. Good for walking the dogs also kids friendly - no special gear required - the trails can be covered in around two hours. A bottle of water is enough unless you like to drink too much. The scene and nature are average.

Some who arrive at Lake Conestee see the old baseball stadium (once home to the erstwhile Greenville Braves) and the dog park and think, "That's not much". But seek out the nature trails and walk through the woods. Well maintained walkways, many a boardwalk, take you through the woods and lead to viewing towers. You'll find many informative signs explaining... More

I participated in a 5K race on the trails at Lake Conestee Nature Park and can easily list this park as one of the top races I've ever participated in thanks to the surroundings. What a lovely park! The picnic tables under the pavilion and restrooms are in good shape and well maintained, the network of trails that connect to... More

This place is pet and kid friendly. Mauldin has done a really nice job with this. Trails are easy to navigate (great if you have kids) with "sighting spots" and an explanation of wildlife you may see and their habits. It's very much a SC wetland environment, great for cub scout activities and a little easy research for science projects... More

The park offers amazing trails through shade and in the sun. Not too many hills, and never very busy. Hiking and biking along with connector to Swamp Rabbit Trail. Main park has playground, ball fields, dog park.

I wouldn't call this a lake as much as a wetlands. They have nice trails to bike or hike. Pets are allowed. We saw beaver dams, turtles, and cranes. The map on the website isn't complete. There is a shortcut to the Mill from the ball park even though it isn't on the map. You don't have to walk all... More

Great running trails, can see all sorts of wildlife including herons, deer, wild turkeys, otters, beavers and all sorts of waterfowl. Good for easy mountain biking, and a great dog park. A welcome piece of refuge from urban life.

It was a great day to go hiking at Lake Conestee Nature Park. You can really see a difference in the park from last year. All the flooding last year has changed the landscape. It's actually a little better. On the paved and boardwalk paths, a lot of the undergrowth has been knocked down, so you can see the lake... More

This is a beautiful wetland area, with a great walking trail. You can see turtles, beavers, and many varieties of birds. It's very peaceful.

Passing by on Butler Road you would think this is just ball fields and a dog park but snuggled behind those things is a mass of trails perfect for a quick hike, walking the dog, fun in the fresh air with your kids kind of day. There are history lessons and nature lesson up at various points on the trails.... More
