Downtown Greenville’s surprisingly slick urban core is centered around Falls Park on the Reedy, one of the most scenic and well-designed urban green spaces in the country.
Greenville (pop. 68,000+) 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 almost 900,000. (population data from Wikipedia)
