Brief DescriptionAviation Themed Park at Greenville Downtown Airport
TypeActivity
CategoryRecreation
DescriptionThe Greenville Downtown Airport's park, which is free to use and open to the public, has an educational amphitheater, exercise "Perimeter Taxiway" and walking "Runways", as well as aviation themed playground equipment, a swing set, a Bi-plane "Climber", a picnic hangar and a Cessna 310 static display. A 15-foot cross section of a Boeing 737 fuselage is in the process of being transformed into a handicapped accessible park entrance.

In the future, we will add education of aviation signage to the park! We plan to cover items like: What runway markings mean, about air traffic controllers language, how aircraft achieve flight, about the Boeing fuselage entrance, Cessna 310 on display, parts of aircraft, careers and education in the aviation industry, General Aviation aircraft uses, gauges on aircraft instrument panels, how weather affects flight, local aviation history, types of aircraft, airport items like: Windsock, how planes "park" (on apron and tied down) etc...

We are now applying for grants, planning more fundraisers and seeking financial help to add park restrooms and the paving of the park's parking lot.
