LED Lamp post

Some of the new LED street lights have been installed on the Hyatt block of North Main Street as part of the LED Streetlight Project.   They are constructed so that nearly all the light is directed downward, to spare the Roper Mountain Science Center from glare in the night sky as they try to use the telescope.  Just between you, me, and the Lamp Post, I like the look of the lights and the quality of the light at night – it is white and not tinted green as the previous lights were.

Bravo Greenville for including so many wonderful parks in downtown Greenville. The Greenville Department of Parks and Recreation is to be commended. Today’s photo shows playground equipment at Cleveland Park. As an extra I have included a link to this photo showing my grandson and I enjoying the swings at Cleveland Park. Also, I have included a link showing my favorite walking route which takes you through six parks. Note that there are atleast 10 parks/gardens in downtown Greenville.

vines

Going green in downtown Greenville .. I especially like these vines planted on the exhaust vents of a recently constructed parking garage in downtown .. in a few years they will look great and they will help cleanup the exhaust fumes.

drain covers

Green drain covers at a construction site in downtown Greenville. This photo was taken by Denton Harryman.

I asked one of the construction workers what the green domes were and he explained that these are covers for the storm drains. They help prevent too much dirt entering the drains during heavy rain. He also explained that they are common at most constructions sites. I know I have noticed many such covers on the construction sites on I385.
