The bridge over the Reedy River in Cancer Survivors Park is taking shape.
The construction of the second phase of Cancer Survivors Park is in full swing.
…And good riddance, with no one happier to say Goodbye than pets who need to be urged to cross the scary industrial clattering and occasionally icy slippery bridge over the Reedy River. The Swamp Rabbit Trail over the “Cheese Grater” bridge has now been closed for the next several months while a new bridge and second phase of the Cancer Survivor’s Park is constructed in this location.
This view shows the finished board walkway among the leafy trees in Cancer Survivors Park. Join the upcoming fun and watch the Chop Cancer culinary competition on Friday August 26. It features 18 local celebrities and Upstate community leaders battling away in the kitchen to raise money for the Cancer Survivors Park Alliance.
The new boardwalk in the Cancer Survivors Park has 3 viewing platforms along the way. The most striking view is from the Leap of Faith Overlook near the highest point. The view currently includes just the Reedy River and the forest, but in the future the second half of the park will add much more visual interest, along with removal of the invasive plant species among the trees and the re-introduction of native plants.
The boardwalk in the Cancer Survivors Park has been completed and is now open. The boardwalk winds among the trees from the Swamp Rabbit Trail for a lofty views of the Reedy River up to the sidewalk on Church Street.
The boardwalks for the Cancer Survivor’s Park are under construction. The park will occupy the reedy river banks between Cleveland Street and Church Street.
Work began for the construction of the Cancer Survivors Park through nearly 200 volunteers donating their time by clearing the brush from the riverfront. The Cancer Survivors Park will fill in the space along the Reedy River between Cleveland Park and Falls Park.
