Parks, Recreation and Forestry

The Town of Greenville parks are the home to many special events put on by many different groups and organizations throughout the year. These events are excellent opportunities to get out and enjoy what the community has to offer.

Community Movie Night
The Greenville parks, Recreation and Forestry Department in partnership with the Greenville Lioness Club show an outdoor movie at Lions Park on several nights throughout the summer. The movie is free and there are concessions served in the pavilion. In the event of rain or high winds, the movie will be moved into the pavilion. When shown in the pavilion, the movie may begin BEFORE dusk, so please come early!  If the movie is moved inside we will post it on our Facebook page.
