All three of my kids went to the park-based camp there as well. I am guessing that there is nothing like that in Greenville. Not having young children it doesn't matter to me much anymore, as I never planned to avail myself of any of the senior programming. Just wondering what people with kids do in Greenville as far as that kind of recreation is concerned.
OK. I appreciate your information. Thank you.

Here's a link to the YMCA, which has branches throughout the county http://www.ymcagreenville.org.

Many of Greenville's parks have neighborhoods (of varying price points, demographiccs, etc) that are adjacent or very proximate.

Good luck on your house hunting.
Thank you so much for these links and information!

Thank you! Sounds like perfect places to live in.
