More about the Upper Chinquapin Greenway
Purchased in 2006 with money from the South Carolina Conservation Bank, the Upper Chinquapin Greenway is 36 acres located on the headwaters of the Chinquapin Creek across from the Milliken Research Center. The Chinquapin Creek is a tributary stream of the Lawson’s Fork and was the source of the city of Spartanburg’s first municipal water system in the late 1890’s.
Adjacent to the Spartanburg Regional Hospital System’s Hospice home, the Upper Chinquapin has 1.6 miles of walking trails. It is the home of a rare plant, the dwarf heartleaf, and has a diverse stand of ferns and hardwoods, including longleaf pines.
SPACE hosts a multitude of events throughout the year. As an organization focused on land conservation and environmental protection, we’ve launched an initiative to focus on sustainability efforts during our fundraisers and small events. With help from local composting company, Atlas Organics, we’re making composting a priority at our two big fundraisers (Bonnamoo and A Shucking Good Time). Thanks to local artists Frankie Zombie and Maggie MacDonald, you won’t miss the compost cans at these events! Want to help make our events more sustainable? Share a ride and bring your own non-glass tumblers with you. Working together we can make an impact!
