Unity Park is about bringing our community together.
Every aspect of the park works to enhance that mission.
This is a park for everyone. And nothing says that better than the name Unity Park.
As our city grows, we need to make sure that we preserve enough green space to help us maintain our sense of community and cooperation.
So this magnificent park is a response to, and a reinforcement of, the intelligent growth that our city has undergone during the past two decades.
Unity Park will be created in an area west of
downtown Greenville in what now encompasses Mayberry Park and the former Meadowbrook Park.
The 60-acre park will stretch from the A.J.
Whittenberg Elementary School of Engineering on the southeastern edge to the Norfolk Southern railroad tracks.
Unity Park will sit on land that is of historical
significance and that emphasizes our desire for unity and understanding.
A key feature will be a 120-foot observation tower, symbolic of our desire to look back at our history and forward to our future.
The park's gathering hall will be the perfect venue for outdoor concerts and special events.
Entrance pathways will make accessibility easy from all the surrounding neighborhoods and a pedestrian bridge over the Reedy River will provide connections to all parts of the park.
A world-class playground will invite children from all over the city to come and be active.
A unique natural-feature play area will encourage children to explore their environment and discover new habitats.
The park will include the restoration of wetlands and pathways for visitors to enjoy the beauty of this natural habitat.
An interactive sprayground feature will provide relief and excitement on hot summer days.
Unity Park makes a bold statement about Greenville. It says we’re serious about preserving green spaces, we’re serious about the well-being of our kids and we’re serious about respecting each other.
