Southside Park

NOW OPEN: 12 dedicated Pickleball courts and 4 Tennis courts!

Southside Park is one of County Rec’s premier facilities offering tournament-quality playing fields, tennis and pickleball courts, multiple playgrounds, shelters and of course is home to Discovery Island Waterpark.

Located in the popular and growing area known as the Golden Strip (Mauldin-Simpsonville area), the popular park sees more than 200,000 yearly visitors.  Families and individuals can enjoy access to the 12 pickleball courts, 4 tennis courts, playground, and shelter while many teams enjoy playing Rec League soccer at the rectangular fields.

With so much to do all conveniently located in one park, shelter rentals are very popular –especially during the Summer waterpark season– so you are encouraged to book ahead…and enjoy!


The shelters have access to two large grills and limited power supply.  Each shelter seats 48 people, or can be reserved as a combo to seat 96 people.  They are only a short walk from the accessible parking spots or to the restroom facilities.  Amenities at Southside Park include Discovery Island Waterpark, athletic fields, basketball, tennis and pickleball.
