We may work hard and study hard in Greenville, but we also love to play. Greenville boasts of more than 25 parks and recreational centers with something for everyone. From little league to specialized recreation, our programs run the gamut and are housed in top-notch facilities.

Being home to a university with a strong arts program means world-class performances on campus and a strong local arts community with much to offer. You'll find community theatre, art and photography galleries, and First Friday Artwalks in Greenville's thriving Uptown district.

In town for an ECU football game? Freeboot Friday is the official pep rally for the ECU Pirates and happens the Friday evenings before a home football game (and sometimes the day after a Thursday night game). The whole community comes together to rally around the Pirates in this free, fun for the family event at Five-Points Plaza.

We are also home to some of the top BMX riders in the world, with more X-Games medals coming through Greenville than anywhere else in the world.
