THANK YOU FOR SUPPORTING THE City of Greenville Parks and Recreation

Lightbulb graphic that says "Did you know?"

The City of Greenville Parks, Recreation and Tourism department oversees 46 city parks occupying more than 460 acres of land within the city, with a goal of planting 1,000 trees. We also offer a variety of recreation services, such as after-school, summer camp, yoga, and senior programming.

Consider a donation to honor the birth of a child, express sympathy upon the death of friends or relatives, or celebrate a milestone in a loved one's life. 

Neighbors may consider partnering with the City to enhance a neighborhood park by presenting a proposal for additional or replacement park amenities made possible through donations.

Youth scholarship fund


The City of Greenville strives to provide recreational programming to youth of the Greenville community by removing cost as a barrier. Financial assistance to youth is provided based on income level and other financial circumstances to allow participation in recreation programs that encourage healthy lifestyles, promote self-confidence and teach life-long lessons.

As stewards of our parks, and for the benefit of all who enjoy them, we are committed to preserving resources and enhancing opportunities that will maximize the value of City parks, now and for generations to come. Donations help supplement existing funding sources, in order to preserve and protect the experience of using the parks, programs and activities for Greenville citizens and all those who visit our beautiful City.  

Donations may be used for new or to replace well-loved park amenities, such as a bench, picnic table, playground piece, shade sail or shelter and may be designated with signage or plaques.

City tree Fund


The City Tree Fund, established to enhance funding for tree planting in the city, has been very successful in supplementing Greenville's natural beauty. Through the fund, residents can donate money to have trees planted within a park, in a public open space, along a greenway, or in the public right-of-way on their street. Plantings are not designated with signage or plaques.

For more information, visit City Tree Fund.
