Stands tall at Furman University in Greenville, South Carolina
Liberty Bridge provides pedestrians with an aerial perspective of the Reedy River as it rushes through scenic Falls Park in Greenville, South Carolina.
Greenville is located in the "Upstate" region of South Carolina. Here, Falls Park, which hugs the Reedy River, is a scenic parkland paradise of large waterfalls, scattered boulders, and manicured green spaces situated at the heart of a thriving central business district offering diverse restaurants, interesting shops, and luxurious hotels. A striking pedestrian bridge, a children’s downtown scavenger hunt for hidden bronze mice, and lots of shade trees also add to Downtown Greenville’s allure. Despite its relatively small city population, Greenville has a metro population of around 851,000.

#1702, one of the new trolleys made an appearance in the Village of West Greenville on the first day of the new routes. Trolley routes and locations can be monitored with the free Trolley Tracker app.
The trolley routes in Greenville will be rearranged, and 2 new trolleys and 2 new routes added. They will now serve more than just the West End as shown in this sidewalk collage.
Side note: this tile collage by Suzanne Vitti also lists the sister cities for Greenville: Bergamo, Italy, Kortrijk, Belgium, Tianjin, China.
The Henry Memorial pocket Park is at the corner of Cleveland Street and Jones Avenue. John A. Henry influenced Greenville’s beautification during his lifetime (1899-1971).
The John A Henry referenced on the sign doesn’t seem to have much of an Internet presence which is understandable since he came before the Internet era. Does anyone know more about his Greenville beautification projects?
This pedestrian bridge over the Reedy River gets good usage since the decking boards were recently replaced and the steel repainted.
The first annual GRAVITY Dodgeball Tournament was held on Saturday at The Well. It was organized by the Greenville Police department and anyone could gather a team and join the competition.
