SC Ports contributes US$50,000 to urban trail system in the City of Greer

South Carolina Ports (SC Ports) is contributing US$50,000 to the City of Greer to help create an urban trail system in the Sunnyside community.

The proposed trail system, called the Wards Creek Trail, will provide a new recreational amenity for Sunnyside residents, according to South Carolina ports and it is designed to create more pedestrian access and connectivity to the City of Greer’s downtown area.

“We are excited to support the City of Greer’s effort to build the Wards Creek Trail. This urban trail system is a great quality of life initiative that will enhance walkability for residents in the Sunnyside community,” commented SC Ports president and CEO Barbara Melvin.

"The trail system will provide recreational opportunities for our community, connect neighborhoods in a way that does not currently exist, and continue the City of Greer’s investment in green space as our population grows," city of Greer administrator Andy Merriman said.

SC Ports opened Inland Port Greer in 2013, extending the Port of Charleston’s reach 212 miles inland with overnight rail service. Inland Port Greer has grown substantially over the past nine years.

SC Ports is now expanding Inland Port Greer to better serve its growing customers.

"SC Ports’ Inland Port Greer is an incredible asset for South Carolina’s supply chain," pointed out Melvin, who added, "As we continue to invest in Inland Port Greer and create more jobs throughout the Upstate, we are proud to also invest in the surrounding community."
