Very good

Very pretty park area. Very good planning and execution of park space. The Swamp Rabbit Trail, which is so nice, goes into the park. Downtown city blocks are festive and pretty. Adults have fun finding the small mice that are hidden, in plain sight, along the Main Street.
One complaint, and I don’t know if this is a Southern thing, is that so many stores close early, aren’t open on Mondays or Tuesdays, or post store hours and are closed during them! Don’t expect to shop after dinner, and most restaurants are not open 7 days a week.

Years ago a highway overpass occupied this space which was squalid and neglected. Visionary city leaders started a movement to tear down the highway and construct a pedestrian bridge over the falls of the Reedy River. Stroke of genius! This area is now an urban sanctuary for families, couples and anyone else who wants to take in the beauty of the falls and the serenity of the river. Easily accessible from downtown Greenville. Take your time there.

We enjoyed our walk in the park but we were annoyed by the saxophone player in the park on 6/17 at noon that played random notes that sounded terrible. I would enjoy the park much better if the city did not allow musicians in it. Peace and quiet is much better!!!

I’ve lived in Greenville for 17 years and seem a lot of changes - not all good. I was hugely surprised by what I found downtown along the park and city streets next to the river on Sunday evening.
During the day Greenville is a typical middle
class modern city with too many restaurants but friendly people. People smile and say Hello and are polite
Sunday night I thought I had slipped into another dimension. Main St was teeming with noisy cars: windows down and blaring music. Then there were the groups of
motorcycles also raving engines and blaring music. Lots and lots of young people in groups milling around. Street musicians at several places with small dance parties around them. Lots of calling and yelling. It didn’t seem terribly dangerous, though it could easily have become so, but it was also not the Greenville of the ads for serene, leisurely dining and strolls along the river.
It was certainly not a family atmosphere.

It's a beautiful park and I loved the view of the Falls from the bridge. But I have to disagree with its "handicap accessibility". I use an electric scooter and couldn't make it back up the ramps. The elevator got me to the lowest level. There are signs on the restaurant between that and the bridge access that say "customers only", so I had to take the ramps up a level. A stranger was kind enough to push me. We wandered on down, but I ended up waiting at the red sculpture for my husband to walk back to the car and come for me.

This is such a beautiful area in Greenviile. Our daughter was in the inaugural class for the Governor's School for the Arts, which is adjacent to the park. At that time the Reedy River wasn't developed. The kids used to do their homework along the banks of the waterfall. It was wild and beautiful then, but it is even more beautiful now. The city did an amazing job of taking a natural treasure and creating a city centerpiece that makes Greenville a great destination for a day trip, an event location, or as a wonderful place to call home. Added to that, the restaurants and shops that surround the park are all lovely with an interesting mix of different cuisines and offerings for many different tastes and pocketbooks. We live a couple hours away and still go back on day trips just to enjoy the park, it's walking trails, and the downtown area of Greenville.

I’ve written previously about Greenville. There is probably no better small/medium town in the entire US that is more beautiful, has more activities, and more restaurant choices than Greenville. For any traveller coming through this region, it is well worth a stop of at least 2-3 nights in this area. You never know—- you might decide to live here!

I went on a summer Sunday afternoon, and it was crowded (not surprised). That part didn't bother me in the least, except maybe difficulty finding a close parking space. The park, bridge and falls were beautiful!!! However, several tall buildings are under construction right on the river. I realize this park is downtown, but that really takes away from the overall ambience. Also, there were many bicyclists on the walkways. Normally, this wouldn't pose any problems, but when there are crowds of people with young children walking and enjoying the scenery, this is not good. I did see several minor bike collisions with people. Lastly, there were some people with large dogs (including pit bulls). These are best left at home, as there were numerous "barking skirmishes" with smaller dogs. Had it not been for these issues (overdeveloping, bicyclists, large dogs), I would rate it a 5; with those in mind, my rating is a 3.

What a beautiful park!! The waterfall was amazing and you can wade into it at the bottom. We enjoyed watching the ducks that gathered at the bottom. The bridge above the falls makes for great pictures and viewing. We hiked the trails / greenways throughout the park and the entire city is so well kept and maintained. Reminded us alot of Asheville, NC...lots of artsy areas, bistros(one overlooking the falls!) and breweries downtown. Make sure you hike all of the areas past the main falls...so many little hidden quiet areas with statues, pavilions and history. We will for sure be returning to GReenville for a longer stay to explore more of the park and city.

We visited here about 3 years ago in order to view the solar eclipse. We were back for a weekend visit to Greenville, and we walked through here several times. If you see a timeline of how this area was connected with the city over time, it is especially impressive what they've done with it in the last 20 years. It is hard to believe that it was almost covered up with vegetation, pollution, and a traffic bridge through most of the 1990s.

Thankfully, someone had the foresight to re-focus and anchor the downtown on this revitalized area. There are so many restaurants and shops to enjoy (there were probably more pre-COVID). The fact that the Swamp Rabbit Trail terminates here and allows walking / running / biking for miles to the north is an added attraction.

Any downtown would be lucky to have any sort of feature remotely similar to this. It really sets Greenville apart, IMO.
