The Reedy River Falls are full from several days of rain, as the sky clears just in time for a brilliant sunset. It should be good news according to the old saying “Red sky at night, sailor’s delight. Red sky in morning, sailor’s warning” .
The Camperdown Development can now easily be seen over the treeline above Reedy River Falls.
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)
