A PARK FOR ALL OF US
The Auro Bridge will span the Reedy River near the center point of the park.
Made of weathered steel, the Auro Bridge will be constructed on-site, as specially trained crews suspended on cables work from both sides of the river.
The Spinks Bridge near Mayberry Street will allow for efficient cross-river access to Welborn Commons.
The restored river will include a terraced bank to help manage water flow, along with natural vegetation and grassy areas to combat erosion.
The 9-acre Michelin Green will welcome visitors to the park.
Covered picnic shelters will provide places for family and friends to gather.
Using natural features in open spaces will draw families and encourage creative play.
The 4,100-square-foot Greenville Water Splashground will be a source of pure summer joy for park visitors.
We broke ground on Unity Park in July 2020.
The park Will open May 19, 2022.
