About This Trail

[Total: 0    Average: 0/5]

For many residents of Greenville, this is “The City Park.” This large and diverse park was created in 1928 after the Cleveland family donated 122 acres of land along the Reedy River to the city.

The park features tennis and volleyball courts, a softball field, playground areas, a fitness trail equipped with workout stations, and both small-group and large-group picnic shelters. In addition, Cleveland Park is the site of the Rock Quarry Garden, the Fernwood Nature Trail, the Vietnam Veterans Memorial and the Greenville Zoo.

Our branch likes to start our strolls at Shelter 6, which has a small parking area, and then follow the sidewalk up toward the zoo where it joins up with the Swamp Rabbit Trail.  From there, we turn left, past the Vietnam memorial and train play structure, and walk to the Cancer Survivor’s park before returning the way we came.  This route is about 2.4 miles round trip.

I joined Hike it Baby in 2014 when my son was just 2 months old.  A year later, I became an Ambassador for the Greenville, SC branch.  I love raising my kids on the trail and meeting so many like-minded families!
