Verner Springs Park
In 1995 the Verner Springs Park was created through a partnership between the Leadership Greenville Class XXI, Habitat for Humanity and the Greenville Redevelopment Authority.
The park’s name pays homage to the Verner Springs Bottling Company which operated in the area in the early 1900’s. A horse track built by the owner of the bottling company also operated in this area of the neighborhood. When created in 1995, the park was a much needed addition to an area which severely lacks common spaces and opportunities for recreation. Currently, however, the park is seen as a vacant, underutilized lot at the neighborhood’s far southwest corner. The current neglected state of the park pleads for improvements. The park’s facilities are currently in disrepair. The park is also too secluded - with overgrown vegetation and a lack of sufficient lighting. Graffiti, broken glass and tire marks through the creek are also present. We want to reclaim this area and make it a positive community asset. A committee will be established to organize the details of this revitalization project.
