Town Common, Greenville’s most visible civic space, sits on 20 acres of open space. Located at 105 East 1st Street, this centrally located resource is unique in that it is located between the Uptown Central Business District and the Tar River. As Greenville continues the trend of revitalizing its urban core, Town Common had become an integral part of Uptown development. To capitalize on the momentum of Uptown development, the City completed the Town Common Master Plan in 2010, which offered a holistic overview of revitalizing the park.  The goal of the Town Common Phase I Design Development Project is to develop refined plans, specifications, and cost analysis for the successful implementation of the Phase I Town Common Improvements.

Phase I focuses on the following elements:

In addition to the projects listed above, the City is also making improvements to the Town Common pedestrian bridge including new paint, new flooring, and enhanced lighting.

The design development of Town Common will include an engaging, participatory process to ensure the inclusion of a wide range of focus groups and stakeholders.
