The City of Greenville continues to upgrade many of their neighborhood parks with new equipment being installed in 11 of them. The new equipment is designed for kids aged 5 to 12 years old and is ADA-accessible. 

There are 11 different neighborhood parks getting the upgrades and, after it’s all installed, new safety surfacing will be added to play areas. 

Although each playground will be different, based on the size of the park, all will have a variety of climbing, balancing, sliding and spinning elements.  Two will also have zip lines. 

Two right now have been completed, Gower and Holmes Parks and more will be done over the summer.   Here's the complete list of parks and how far along they are from the City of Greenville.

  • Gower Park (24 Evelyn Avenue): Installation completed June 15. Borders for zipline and ADA features will be completed by mid-July. (Watch a video showing the playground installation at this park.)
