Things to Do in Simpsonville SC

When it comes to entertainment, recreation, and amenities, the City of Simpsonville has it all.

Whether one is looking for a large concert venue that hosts world-renowned acts or a smaller venue for local favorites, Simpsonville has it. Whether a family wants to visit a spacious park with running trails and ball fields one weekend and a children’s playground and dog park the next, Simpsonville has it. Whether an on-the-go professional must make short trips to nearby metropolitan areas or catch the occasional last-minute flight, Simpsonville has it.

Heritage Park is one of Simpsonville’s greatest assets. Located on N.E. Main Street, Heritage Park has a full-size amphitheater, athletic fields, walking trails, and two playgrounds and is home to family-favorite events like Movies in the Park, an annual Easter egg hunt, an Independence Day celebration, Halloween at Heritage Park, and Christmas at Heritage Park.

CCNB Amphitheatre at Heritage Park is a full-size amphitheater that seats up to 16,000 people and hosts star performers. Past acts at the CCNB Amphitheatre at Heritage Park include Clint Black and Trace Adkins, Collective Soul, Wu Tang Clan, Hank Williams Jr., Post Malone and Foreigner. Simply put, our backyard is the Upstate’s stage.

City Park is another beacon of entertainment in Simpsonville. Smaller in size than Heritage Park but equal in opportunities for family-friendly fun, City Park has a walking trail, basketball and tennis courts, community center building, a sensory playground, and dog park. Adjacent to City Park is Hendricks Pavilion, a miniature amphitheatre that hosts the Simpsonville Summer Music Series & Food Truck Rodeo in June, July, and August.

Simpsonville’s unique location in the Upstate makes key areas and nearby cities easily accessible. Seated near a major interchange of interstates 385 and 85, Simpsonville is 20 minutes from downtown Greenville, 30 minutes from the Greenville-Spartanburg International Airport, and an hour-and-a-half from both Atlanta and Charlotte.

City of Simpsonville community relations specialist Justin Campbell said the entertainment and recreation opportunities and ease of access provided to travelers make Simpsonville special.

“Whether the topic is recreation, economic development, or responsible growth, Simpsonville is simply successful,” Campbell said. “Simpsonville is not just a bedroom community. We have amphitheatres, parks, free annual events, a farmer’s market, new commercial and housing developments, and more in the works. It’s simply fun to live, work, and especially play in Simpsonville.”

The City of Simpsonville has captured the essence of Simpsonville in its new brand with input from small business owners, community leaders, city officials, and the public. Simpsonville’s new tagline “Simply Home” encapsulates the desire for a brand that is bold, fresh, and confident. With a new tagline, logo, and official seal, the City of Simpsonville is poised to promote connectivity, community, and pride in what residents and visitors alike can call “home.”

In addition to rebranding, the city has also undertaken the process of developing a new downtown Simpsonville master plan. With recent growth, increases in population, and more opportunities on the horizon, now is the time to update the heart of the city while connecting all parts of the city. Coupled with the city’s new brand, the downtown master plan will be a blueprint that will make Simpsonville simply successful.
