Constructed during the 1930s as a Works Progress Administration project, Duncan Park Lake is a Spartanburg treasure – and so is the surrounding neighborhood. The lake and adjoining walking trails, tennis courts, and ball fields comprise one of Spartanburg’s most vibrant recreational settings. About six miles of off-road bicycling trails were constructed in the park just a few years ago. On any sunny day, you’ll see residents and visitors playing, jogging, or feeding ducks.
The residential surroundings include beautiful tree-lined streets and views of the lake. Housing options range from traditional two-story homes to more modern ranch designs. Duncan Park is a short drive to downtown and is near shopping centers on the southern edge of the city. The neighborhood also sits across Union Street from the City's new dog park, which connects to the popular Mary Black Rail Trail.
