Making the healthy choice the easy choice

Park Hop 2017: Coming Soon!

The 5th annual Park Hop begins on May 19th, 2017. Park Hop is a free, summer-long scavenger hunt in parks across Greenville County that encourages children and families to discover parks while searching for answers to clues. Participants earn prizes, which they receive at the Park Hop Closing Celebration in August. For more information about Park Hop, click here.

Why LiveWell Greenville

Greenville County has one of the highest obesity rates in the nation with 66% of adults and 41% of youth being overweight or obese.  It is difficult to maintain a healthy lifestyle when the surrounding environment does not promote healthy habits.  Without providing adequate access to healthy eating and active living, the overall health of our community will continue to decline.

Hosted by the YMCA of Greenville as our legal and fiscal agent, LiveWell Greenville has become the primary vehicle through which partner organizations can successfully promote positive change.  Our coalition supports schools, neighborhoods, businesses and other areas of our community through resources, collaboration and evaluation to promote healthy eating and active living.

    Thank You, Park Heroes!

    Thank you to the 65 Park Hero volunteers who spent two hours of their day to help clean up the area from Hampton Station to Poe Mill. They cleaned up litter and debris under Pete Hollis Bridge (183) in preparation for a new spur trail from the GHS Swamp Rabbit Trail.
