Discovering Greenville SCs West End Historic District

Marilyn JonesA new visitor to Greenville, SC, I hear of Falls Park on the Reedy, but have no idea where it is located. Walking along Main Street, I stop and ask a young woman for directions. She smiles and says it is right across the street. Indeed, Falls Park, a 32-acre crescent-shaped greenway, is nestled up against the historic West End Historic District.

I walk down a wide set of steps and enter the park that is still alive with vibrantly colored flowers even though there is an autumn chill in the air.

The flowers and pathways winding along the Reedy River are beautiful, but the center point of the park is Liberty Bridge, a pedestrian bridge that curves around a waterfall on the river.

The 355-foot long suspension bridge is supported by cables on only one side, giving an unobstructed view of the falls — a design unique in the United States.
