Parks, Recreation & Forestry
The Park Commission along with Parks, Recreation and Forestry Department staff are responsible for the planning of the development and maintenance of the Town’s parks and recreation facilities. Many tools are used in when planning including meetings, surveys and comments. Citizen input is vital for successful planning. That’s why we need to hear from you. To provide your input you can attend a Park Commission meeting, fill out one of our periodic surveys or send us an email. Remember, we won’t know what you’d like unless you tell us.
Comprehensive Outdoor Recreation Plan:
A Comprehensive Outdoor Recreation Plan (CORP) is a document that provides guidance for future parks and open space development and acquisition that are intended to improve the quality of life for Town residents. Proper implementation of this plan, over time, will provide the Town with a park and open space system that is designed to meet the needs of the citizens both in types of facilities and distribution of those facilities. The CORP is typically updated every five years.

“Field of Dreams” Master Plan:
In 2006, the Town of Greenville formed a committee for the purpose of creating a master plan for the 75 acre parcel acquired in 2004 dubbed Greenville’s “Field of Dreams”. Over a period of about one year the committee used meetings, a survey and several public listening sessions to draft a plan for this future park. The Master Plan calls for a vast array of facilities including baseball/softball fields, soccer fields, tennis, basketball, trails, a nature area with a constructed wetland and a homestead gardens.
Periodically the Parks, Recreation and Forestry Department will conduct surveys to gather information from the public. The surveys are used for planning for future development as well as improving existing facilities and services. If you receive a survey please take the time to fill it out as it is an important tool used to provide the community with the desired facilities and services.
