The area has picnic shelters, fitness trails, volleyball and tennis courts, a softball field and tons of playgrounds scattered throughout the park. Specific attractions in the park include the Greenville Zoo, the Rock Quarry Garden, Fernwood Nature Trail and the Vietnam Veterans Memorial.

This unique park earned its name by creating one of the most successful animal talent agencies in the country and houses a number of creatures that have made it on the big-screen in both film and television. In fact, Hollywild has 'Tank,' the only 'working' rhinoceros in showbiz.

It could be said that the entire state of South Carolina is a botanical garden. Since the British established the Province of Carolina, their green thumb techniques came along with them. Here in Spartanburg however, this botanical garden is a private one established by the Hatcher Family, transplants from the plains of Indiana. The family worked the grounds until the late 1990s and then thankfully turned over the property over to the Spartanburg County Foundation so it could be used for the public in 2003.
This historic home is believed to be the oldest house in Spartanburg's city limits. The Seay House is open to the public on the third Saturday of each month from May through October and by appointment year-round.

In the early 1760's King George III granted land to colonists throughout the Americas and in 1765, Charles and Mary Moore built this house with slave labor upon 550-acres. Thereafter, the house and its inhabitants saw firsthand the tumult of the American Revolution. In fact, one of the most salient points about the property is that Catharine, the daughter of Charles and Mary helped the colonial revolution when she revealed the British regiment's position during the Battle of Cowpens in 1781. There are still many of the original buildings on the plantation like the barn, meat curing house, dry cellar, and school, and the preservation society gives tours of the mansion throughout the year, however it does have seasonal hours.
