The Adventure Park at Trailblazer

 Located within the Trailblazer Park Municipal Complex on Trailblazer Drive, the Adventure Park was a joint project with the City of Travelers Rest and Greenville County Parks, Recreation, and Tourism. The park features a nature-themed playground with an ADA carousel and swing, double zipline, jungle dome, covered picnic shelters, and other outdoor equipment that honors the natural environment found in the community.

The Adventure Park is the first inclusive playground within the City of Travelers Rest with accessible features that assure everyone in our community can get fit, regardless of physical or cognitive ability.
