As stewards of our parks, we are committed to preserving and protecting these valuable natural resources, both now and for generations to come. Donations help supplement existing funding sources and allow us to enhance our public spaces for the benefit of all who enjoy them.

Donations may be used to add new or replace well-loved park amenities such as benches, picnic tables, playground equipment and shade structures. Donations may be designated with signage or plaques.

City tree Fund


Established to enhance funding for tree planting in public spaces, the City Tree Fund has been very successful in supplementing Greenville's natural beauty. Through the fund, residents can donate money to have trees planted in a park, on their street, along a greenway or in a public open space. *Plantings are not designated with signage or plaques
