NPR: A park helps Greenville weather the recession
National Public Radio this week broadcast a nearly five-minute feature on how Greenville's Falls Park in the heart of downtown helped the city weather the recent recession.
The story profiled Mayor Knox White and his leadership in spearheading the park. It also profiled the subsequent economic development and community pride that has resulted from $13 million spent on the downtown part beginning in 2004.
