Some clients have asked me about the bridge in the header of my web site. It is actually Liberty Bridge in Falls Park which is located in downtown Greenville and it should be on your list of things to see when you come to Greenville.


Liberty Bridge and Falls Park were dedicated in September of 2004.  The bridge, which is unique in it's design, allows visitors a spectacular view of the Reedy River and overlooks the park.  Construction took over 12 months for the 355 foot long bridge with a cost  topping $4.5 million and was paid for by the City of Greenville's Hospitality tax.
