Park Heroes - Our Parks Need Heroes… Our Parks Need You

Greenville County Parks are your backyard!! They are great places play, relax, and just get outside and like anything, they need people to help keep them looking good. The Greater Greenville Parks Foundation created the Park Hero program to get some love for our public spaces and to give some love to our Park Heroes.

When you sign up to be a Park Hero, you will join other like-minded people who share a love of public lands and giving back. Sign-up to become a Park Hero because heroes do incredible things!

Register online as a Park Hero and we will keep you in the loop as volunteer opportunities arise. Thank you for being a Park Hero!

Our 30th Park Hero project of the year is upon us. Join us for a Volunteer Appreciation Day at the Pavilion Recreation Complex on December 2nd from 9:30 to 1:00. All volunteers will receive breakfast, lunch, and free passes to skate at the Ice Rink during public skate after the project!

Work will include: Mulching, litter pick-up, brush clearing, shrub planting and general beautification of our rec center campus. As always, everyone is welcome, just make sure to register ahead of time so we know who to expect.

We will meet outside of Greenville County Rec's Administrative Office off Old Spartanburg Road. All tools will be provided, but bring your own gloves if you have them.

We want to thank our loyal volunteers for making this a record year for stewardship in Greenville County so please come out one more time to celebrate the hard work of 2017. Of course, new Park Heroes are welcome to join the fun.

Be a Hero, Volunteer!

Get your friends involved! Send them here to register to be a Park Hero for news about upcoming projects.
