  • This place is so unique and fresh and lovely. It's one of the slowest places around town and literally in the middle of town. It's a small park on the edge of downtown/N Main St/Main St...

  • A nice, shaded park right in Greenville!!! They have an area to play mini golf, a play area for the kids and several walking paths. It was really relaxing to sit up under the shade trees too!!!!

  • What's not to like? The entire park is very well taken care of and just charming. The train that rain through the park in the 50s has been replaced with a free putt-putt course. I haven't played, so I'm unsure if you need to bring your own putter and ball. Walking paths with benches, tennis courts, picnic shelters with tables, public restrooms, close parking, even a free book exchange. On the walking trails several small bridges cross over from what I've read is an unnamed creek. If it is unnamed, can I claim it? Dibs! I name thee body of water - Jeff Creek. The stone and concrete foot entrance with the cannons and National Register of Historic Places plaque looks amazing. I've been trying to track down and get a picture of all the available NRofHP bronze markers in Greenville. There are 88 landmarks on the list, and I'm about halfway finished. McPherson Park's plaque is displayed the grandest of any I've seen so far. The marker is prominently mounted on a stone podium centered between two cannons. It's the Frank Howard's Rock of landmark medallions!
  • McPherson Park in the North Main Neighborhood holds the title of the oldest park in Greenville. Established in 1884 this 12.5 acres of wooded haven is the home to Sears Recreation center and log cabin, which at one time served as a consignment shop for the sale of handicrafts made by retirees. Two playgrounds anchor the park on both ends, as an 18 hole miniature golf course (bring your own equipment for a free round) and bandstand claim a good portion of the middle of the park. Walking paths connect the two playgrounds, crossing a small creek with a number of bridges. Public bathrooms, off street parking and tennis courts are also available. The overall park is clean and maintained but walking paths are in need of attention as they are cracked, buckled and crumbing at the edges. Escape the hustle and bustle of the city and take a moment to find tranquility in the murmur of the stream, the calling of birds and the laughter of children.
