  • What a delightful gem! Setting & decor is fun even if you're not into planes. Play ground is well done for all ages with a walking path included. Our party of 4 adults each ordered something different & all would order it again. Personally had the Pimento cheese sandwich. Grilled to perfection. Homemade PC has a elusive sweet note amongst the expected tangy punch that defines a good PC! If we lived in Greenville it would fast be our go to place!
  • My Granddaughter always loves this park! Lots of fun playground equipment to choose from! Only problem is there is absolutely no shade and on hot days some of the slides are way too hot to even play on! Great fun though watching the planes take off and land!
