Lake Conestee Nature Park – Greenville, South Carolina


South Carolina  |  SC Picture Project  |  Greenville County Photos  |  Lake Conestee Nature Park

Recently rehabilitated, the land that comprises Lake Conestee Nature Park once served as the epicenter of industrialization in Greenville. In fact, it was home to the Conestee Mills for roughly 200 years.

Originally created by the construction of a dam for hydroelectric power in 1892, Lake Conestee slowly filled with sediment until it became the shallow wetland it is today. The 400-acre park now welcomes the public with a 2.1-mile nature trail.
