“it's for the birds!”
Lake Conestee Nature Park consists of over 400 acres of beautiful natural habitat on the Reedy River just 6 miles south of downtown Greenville, South Carolina. This wildlife sanctuary contains hardwood and mixed forests, extensive wetlands, 3 miles of the Reedy River, and a rich diversity of wildlife habitat. Deer, raccoon, beaver, fox, river otter, and various small mammals inhabit the park, along with numerous species of reptiles and amphibians. Over 197 bird species have been reported by the Greenville County Bird Club. The park has been designated as an Important Bird Area of Global Significance by the National Audubon Society. Historic Lake Conestee and the Lake Conestee Dam are listed on the National Register of Historic Places, along with parts of Conestee Mill. The Mission of the Conestee Foundation is to sustain the nature park as a sanctuary for humans and wildlife alike, an asset to the Upstate community, an extraordinary green oasis where kids and families can learn about nature, and enjoy the many benefits of being outdoors and active.
Beautiful park! We stopped by for a walk on a road trip from NC to TX , and had a great time! We could have spent all day here. The trails are clean and well maintained, with nice signage and picnic areas scattered throughout the woods. 😃
