Get out your finest Garden Party apparel and join us for the Grand Opening of the Cancer Survivors Park.  The evening will include many special moments to commemorate the park. Behind the scenes, the Cancer Survivors Park Alliance has been working to create a special place in the center of Greenville where everyone can gather for years to come. A space for celebration, learning, hope, and healing for our community. 

"We are thrilled to unveil the park with such an enchanting event, said Tom Bates, Board President of the Cancer Survivors Park Alliance. We are delighted to host this special celebration which will include many of the countless donors, sponsors, and survivors who have made this grand opening possible. In anticipation of the party, we are receiving an enthusiastic response by a large number of our supporters. As a cornerstone of our grand opening weekend, we look forward to sharing in an unforgettable evening."

 The Garden Party will be an elegant evening featuring music by Trey Francis from atop the Celebration Pavilion with delicious food from Chef 360 and drinks poured by Uptown Pour served among the different gardens.  Docents will be on hand to share the meaning of garden spaces while guests are encouraged to wander throughout the park and celebrate its opening.  There will be a featured local artist live painting a unique piece.  Each guest will also have the opportunity to have a special photo taken by Snapster and contribute to a commemorative piece. 

 The Cancer Survivors Park is a 6.8-acre site along the Swamp Rabbit Trail which connects Greenville’s Cleveland Park with Falls Park. With careful planning and thoughtful consideration to create a space for hope and healing, the Park includes a central pavilion, children’s garden, a 1,000-foot boardwalk, specialty gardens and sculptural and educational elements. The park will house numerous community cancer support programs designed to help anyone learn to live with cancer and ultimately any life-altering illness or loss.  

The event is from 6 p.m. to 9 p.m. and tickets will be $125 per person with sponsorships available.  Sales benefit funding for the park and the Cancer Survivors Park Alliance.

Here's what Dorothy has to say about the her involvement with the Park and this piece:

Dorothy Shain, a Greenville, South Carolina based artist, has a dynamic portfolio. Dorothy’s exploration of mediums is reflective of the colors, textures, and patterns drawn from her adventures around the globe. Heavily influenced by her travels, which commenced during a college study abroad program, Semester at Sea, Dorothy has taken her experiences back to her easel allowing the art to reveal the inspirations and influence of the cultures, people and places seen.                                                                                                                         

When the opportunity arose to create a silk scarf for the Cancer Survivors Park, I knew that the project had landed in my path for a reason. I instantly felt so inspired by the hard work of the team members involved, the park itself and the innovative + meaningful work taking place in my hometown of Greenville, South Carolina. The direct impact cancer has had throughout my family, only strengthened my connection to the park.                                                                                   

When the time came to create the artwork for the pattern, the Cancer Survivors Park team and myself knew that it would be important to not only utilize the 26 colors of cancer throughout the pattern, but to incorporate healing elements specific to the Park. From the silver bells to the bronze lion sculpture, we wanted to shine light on particularly special aspects.

I could not be more grateful for the opportunity to create these special pieces.



Checking In:

We will have two check-in stations for guests. One located by the Celebration Pavilion where Southern Valet will be shuttling guests to and from the event. The second check-in will be on the boardwalk by NEXT for guests that park there or who walk over from Church Street. 

Guests must bring their identification, but no printed ticket is necessary for entry. 



Parking is limited so guests are encouraged to carpool, or use Lyft, or Uber. Southern Valet will be offering golf cart shuttle service from the Serrine Stadium parking lot. Guests can also park at the NEXT offices on Church Street and can enter the event by heading to the right of the building and onto the boardwalk. Guests needing handicap parking will be able to utilize the lower lot of the Chamber of Commerce at 24 Cleveland Street. The rest of the Chamber parking lot will be reserved for event staff and equipment and blocked to the public.

If needed, overflow parking will be available at the St. Pauls Church on 304 E. Camperdown Way, with two lots available including one Cleveland Street.

Enjoy the Garden Party Safely: 

We invite all guests to take part in all the extraordinary features around the park throughout the night. We do have to ask that guests stay within the fenced area by the Swamp Rabbit Trail and that no alcohol goes beyond the fence. As an exclusive ticketed event, we will have exclusive entry points for event guests. 


Thank you to our sponsors!
