History of Oak Grove Lake Park

This very unique site, nestled in a highly urbanized residential community, was owned by the SC Department of Natural Resources and transferred to Greenville County Rec in 2008. Shortly afterwards the District solicited comments from the neighbors to determine a vision for the facility. The .8 mile road around the lake is heavily used by walkers, joggers, bikers, and families but not a pedestrian facility. The lake is also stocked and a popular fishing destination for local residents.
