The deli has some really good food for lunch. They close around 2pm every day. The park is awesome. Planes flying overhead. A lap for the parents to walk. And tons of playground equipment with airport theme. Great place to meet up!

This is a very fun place for the kids. I also like the track that circles the playground. This allows me to get my steps in while the kids play. The airplanes take off sometimes, and that is cool to watch. There is also a small restaurant.

Relatively new, fairly common playground equipment. However, playground is immediately adjacent to private airport which is consistently active with takeoffs and landings of prop and jet planes. Park has a a large sheltered picnic area with many tables as well as benches throughout

We were in Greenville for the day, and wanted to let our kids run around for a bit and found this awesome park. This park might be one of the best ideas/execution of a kids playground that I've seen. The park is completely fenced in, so feel free to let the kids run and play to their hearts content, without worrying about them going somewhere they shouldn't. The park has a covered picnic area, that's available for reserving for parties, and they also have a public bathroom, as well as a restaurant attached to the park for anyone who needs an energy boost while here. The park backs right up to the runway, and while we were here, we had to have seen 40+ planes take off and land. Super fun for the kids. The theming around the park with the airport, is done so well, the kids can sit in a playground equipment plane, climb to the top of the control tower, or take off down the run way. It's even great for the older kids and parents as there is a circular track around the entire area great for riding bikes, scooters or just running. If I had to make one suggestion, I might get rid of the mulch for a rubber base around the playground equipment, but outside of that, the entire playground might be one of the most well thought out playgrounds I've ever been to. We spent over 2 hours here, and the kids did not get bored. Wish they had one of these closer to my home in Charlotte!

Response from LakeHartwellGuide, Public Relations Manager at Runway Park at GMU
Responded Jan 22, 2020
Thanks for your great review. We tried to think of everything that we could. Just curious why you think rubber mulch is better than wood? We heard it can get hot, melt and be tar like without shade and has other issues. The wood we just have to refill sometimes. Haven't heard negative comments with playground grade wood chips. Thoughts? Ideas?

A very neat playground with an airport theme, located at the airport, alongside a runway and terminal.
