Parks and Recreation

Spartanburg...Always Doing

Whether you’re looking for a lunchtime basketball game or a new bridge group, whether you like to pedal on two wheels or skate on four, there is always somewhere and something to play in Spartanburg.

The Parks & Recreation Department is dedicated to enhancing your quality of life by providing a variety of recreational programs and opportunities in safe, well-maintained facilities and parks. More than 150,000 people of all ages participated in a program, took a class, or utilized a city recreation center or park at least once last year. And all of our fitness classes, sports, cultural arts and other special programs are open to the general public and are either free or available at a modest cost.

Celebration of Sport

Sponsored by Adidas, the "Celebration of Sport" event kicked off the refurbishment of basketball courts at the Piedmont Interstate Fairgrounds on our city's Northside. Featuring a resurfaced court with a stunning mural created by local artists Russell Bannan and Eli Blasko as well as new backboards, lighting, and bleachers, this quality of life investment shines a spotlight on a formerly underutilized asset with tremendous potential for growth
