Greenville County Recreation District's three aqueous arenas entertain summer adventurers with a heat-harassing array of vertical, horizontal, and circular water activities. Fish imitators at or above 48 inches tall flail about in the bowl slide at 7th Inning Splash while sticking their tongues out at summertime doldrums. Slap your belly onto a boogie board and battle Discovery Island's FlowRider, a simulated wave crest that ebbs and flows like a dog's interest in a tennis ball, allowing riders to feel the rush of surfing. Guests can lounge blissfully in the lazy river, dipping their toes into the comfortable water, or soak in solar sustenance on the sun deck as kids frolic in the children's play structure. Adrenaline addicts can revel in momentum as they careen down the steep drops of Otter Creek's speed slide, navigate twirling tubes, or let the cool marriage of hydrogen and oxygen rain upon them from oversized play fountains.
Water enthusiasts can wander the waves and wrestle the rides of all three of Greenville County Recreation District’s parks with the Rec 'n' Crew unlimited pass. Members may take to the frozen tundra and practice synchronized interpretations of Frasier subplots during public-skate sessions at the Pavilion; and pass-holders can also explore the obstacle courses of the Bounce House's inflatable playground.
For questions, please contact the Pavilion directly at (864) 322-7529.
The Pavilion cultivates every species of physical activity within its 66,000-square-foot indoor complex and adjacent outdoor fields. The eclectic indoor space hosts soccer, volleyball, and curling face-offs, as well as a year-round ice-skating facility, bounce house, and inline-skating space. Fledgling ice skaters slip and slide during public skating sessions or take part in the U.S. Figure Skating Association's basic skills program to grease their triple axels. As the temperature rises, members make a mad dash outdoors to one of six tennis courts and three soccer fields, or hail a ride on George, The Pavilion's historic miniature passenger train. The complex's Boundless Playground offers a space where children with disabilities can be included in play thanks to accessible slides, swings, and climbing structures.
