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!

Saturday, March 2nd - Park Heroes Volunteer Project – Cedar Falls Park – 9:30am to 12pm

Join Park Heroes for the first official project of 2019 at Cedar Falls. The rainy winter has dumped lots of trash along the Reedy River at the park so we will do some riverbank cleanup. We will install some blue bird boxes, lay out some mulch, remove some debris from the trails, and other beautification tasks. If you haven’t been to Cedar Falls Park in southern Greenville County, now is your chance to visit.
