We are in the process of building an Active Living Coalition in Greenville County. This coalition will be a collective group of individuals and organizations that will work together to impact equitable access to places where all community members can achieve an active lifestyle and safely connect to everyday destinations.

Current Initiatives

Open Community Use

This initiative promotes the practice of allowing community members access to outdoor recreational equipment (playground, track, fields, courts) at school and churches while facilities are not in use.

Upstate Park Hop

This initiative supports the implementation of the Upstate Park Hop program, a free scavenger hunt at select parks and trails across the Upstate that encourages children to discover parks and get outdoors.

Future Initiatives

Complete Streets Policy

This initiative supports the SCDOT Complete Streets Policy (Departmental Directive #28) that requires and encourages a safe, comfortable, integrated transportation network for all users, regardless of age, ability, income, ethnicity, or mode of transportation.

People, Parks & Power (P3)

This initiative supports power building by community-based organizations to reverse park and green space inequities in under-resourced neighborhoods. 


Outdoor Play & Learning Advocacy

This initiative advocates to ensure all students have access to unstructured play time to recharge during the school day and access outdoor learning environments to enhance the educational process.
