Kay Roper, Executive Director, Cancer Survivors Park Alliance

Cancer Survivors Park is a place of celebration, hope, healing and learning. It comprises 6.8 acres along the Swamp Rabbit Trail at 52 Cleveland Street. It stretches from the edge of Falls Park at Church Street to the edge of Cleveland Park at the Cleveland Street Bridge.

The area is a unique blend of gathering spaces and natural walkways that provide a place of renewal and healing for anyone who visits. In addition to a restful park setting, the space includes a central pavilion, specialty gardens, sculptural, and educational elements. The park also houses numerous community programs designed to help anyone learn to live with cancer, or any life-altering illness or loss.

The park was opened in early 2018 and celebrated its grand opening on June 3, 2018, but they are not done. Visitors will see new elements unfold in the park as the next phases are begun in 2020.  Other sponsorships are still available.  The regular maintenance and supervision of the park is handled by the City of Greenville.

Ongoing programs and projects for the park continue to be the responsibility of Cancer Survivors Park Alliance and its organizational partners.
