Pedrick's Garden.

12 posts in this topic

Plans for Pedrick's Garden at Falls Park continue to move forward. :thumbsup: The City of Greenville has been awarded $100,000 by the SC Department of Parks, Recreation, and Tourism for the construction of it.

You can see schematic site plans for the future park here: http://www.jmmds.com/2012/11/landscape-design-for-a-greenville-sc-public-park-part-two/

I like this idea and all, but wish that the area between Falls and Cleveland Park would be focused on first. The metal bridge is dangerous when wet, an eyesore, it's loud, and the area around the river is a mess. Again, Pedrick's Garden looks great but why not clean up other areas before spending more money in a place that already looks fine?

Greenville's park system just keeps getting better and better.

I'm almost positive plans are in place to replace the metal bridge.  Since it is in a flood zone, the bridge deck will have to be six feet higher, so the bridge will need to be much longer.  The exposed sewer pipes will remain, however.

Ah crap...I remember reading about that now haha. Thanks for the reminder, glad it's on the agenda and can't wait for a new bridge there. :-D

Since its on the "agenda" does that mean it definitely happens or that it is proposed?

Site grading permit has been issued for this project. Triangle Construction is the general contractor.

This garden is really coming along. This should be another great gem in Greenville's continuous string of lush park landscapes. Plus, it's always nice to see some asphalt surface parking torn up for a great public, permeable surface.

This has turned out quite well IMO. I'll be interested to see the water feature. Is it completed now?
