The bridge’s uniquely curved deck spans 355 feet across the Reedy River, offering spectacular views of Reedy River Falls and the vast gardens of Falls Park. Since its completion in 2004, the Liberty Bridge has become Greenville’s most recognizable landmark and a unique symbol of the city’s downtown revitalization efforts.
The Liberty Bridge- 345 ft. long, 12 ft. wide and with a concrete reinforced deck supported by a single suspension cable- is like nothing else in the US. Spanning the Reedy River in Greenville, this structure overlooks the local waterfall and the gardens at Falls Park.

Today the Reedy River is primarily recognized for its beautiful and scenic shoal and waterfall at Falls Park in Greenville, South Carolina. However, the Reedy River is much more than just a scenic downtown attraction. It is an important riparian system that stretches from the mountains all the way to Lake Greenwood.
Even though it is by no means Greenville’s only park, Falls Park on the Reedy holds a special place as the crown jewel of the thriving downtown.
Falls Park on the Reedy is a 32-acre park adjacent to downtown Greenville, South Carolina in the historic West End district. Considered the birthplace of Greenville, the park was founded in 1967 when the Carolina Foothills Garden Club reclaimed 26 acres of land that had been previously used by textile mills. It is a blend of nature and modern buildings with a suspension bridge to walk over the waterfalls.
