Find Your Space in Our Community

Gardening is about much more than simply growing your own food — it’s about getting outside, exercising, socializing, and teaching children (and reminding ourselves) where food comes from. It gives you a chance to connect with nature, and is a lifelong hobby that is both therapeutic and productive. Getting delicious fruits and vegetables is just a nice bonus. Greenville County Rec offers you your very own garden available at your choice of 4 locations for only $50 per bed annually.

Professional, friendly assistance is provided by Rec staff.  Contact Aerin if you have any questions.  [email protected]

To ensure the safety of our participants, families, and staff, Greenville County Rec will be immediately suspending all youth and adult athletic and recreational programs and events as well as field rentals until further notice. This includes all Greenville County Rec afterschool programs, community center programs and rentals. Greenville County Aquatic Complex is also closed until further notice. We will continue to evaluate the situation and will provide updates as they become available.
