The pedestrian bridge over the Reedy River has been named the Eugenia Duke bridge in honor of the founder of Duke’s Mayonnaise. Greenville native Eugenia Duke invented the condiment and began serving it at the local Duke’s Sandwich shop in 1917. The bridge is located next to the historic Wyche Pavilion which served as the first factory for Duke’s Mayonnaise.

The Duke Sandwich Company and partners recently sponsored bridge renovations, including new lighting as seen in last week’s post.

Greenville

The Riverwalk in Downtown Greenville, South Carolina, is a beautiful extension from the city’s spectacular Falls Park. 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.
