The Community of Greenville SC has tons of Children's activities and resources. Downtown Greenville is a great place to take the kids. They have a genuine cool toy store & Mast General (which has a great kids section), but best thing about downtown are the outdoor options - The Children's Garden, Swamp Rabbit Trail, Falls Park, Liberty Bridge, THE CHILDREN'S FOUNTAINS (outside of the Hampton Inn Riverplace), and to top off your day - Marble Slab Creamery or Spill the Beans for ICE CREAM to name just a couple.! It's a great place for play dates, or to spend time with family on the weekend.
Greenville also has the Children's Museum at Heritage Green and the Jon Kroc Salvation Army Community Center which is state of the art with an indoor pool.
There are several water parks in Greenville County built by the City of Duncan and Greenville County. These water parks are very popular in the summer and the only way to beat the heat. These water parks are Shipwreck Cove water park built by City of Duncan, Discovery Island, Otter Creek and 7th Inning Splash run by Greenville County Recreation Department.
