There is an ampitheatre for putting on plays.
There are restaurants that back up to the park and lots of them up on the street level.
Here is the beautiful suspension bridge that curves through the middle of the park & over the falls.
The view from the bridge.
The kids took a moment to pause for a picture or two.
I loved the gardens.
G was wading in the river until......
.......this little guy showed up. Snakes - yuck!
There was a commons area where lots of local street entertainment showed up.(It was really cool & kind of reminded me of midevil times when they would have all of this in the town square.)
Anyone could go out there and do "their thing". Of course, my little one had to go out & work with one lady doing acrobatics. (G's really a ham - very unlike her shy mother.)
Once it started getting darker, we headed back up to Main Street and went to get ice cream at Spill the Beans, sat around the fountains for a while & then headed home.
Here is one last picture of downtown Greenville at night. I hope you get to see all of this in person one day - they've done a great job on it.
Thanks for taking my little downtown tour. Now I've got to go convince my hubby to take me out for a date night to some of these great spots (w/o the kids). Maybe we'll even take a ride in the horse drawn carriages......my birthday is coming up soon. I'll keep you posted.
