Additional comments.
1. About Cleveland Park
Beginning at East Washington Street and Ridgeland Avenue, and ending at Furman College Way, Greenville's Cleveland Park is the longest park in the city. It follows the eastern flow of the Reedy River as it empties from the Reedy River Historic Park and joins with Ridgeland Creek.

The park features paved walkways that run along the river banks and under several major roadways in and around Greenville. At the start of the park is the 10-acre Greenville Zoo. By no means a large zoo, it is a favorite stop for children and includes two of Greenville's most famous symbols: Joy and Ladybug the elephants.

The park includes playgrounds for children, benches for sitting and resting, and plenty of green space along the river. If in Greenville, take an afternoon and stroll the park. For families is perfect. For the rest of us, its a delight.
