About the Downtown Memorial Airport Park: Spartanburg

The Downtown Memorial Airport Park includes something for everyone. Have a little one? Great! There’s a whole separate playground for them. Have a big kid? This park has a really cool 3-story climbing structure, aviation-themed of course, complete with 3 slides for big kids.

Have a kid who wants to ride their bike? Perfect! They will love the paved trails around the playgrounds. Have a child obsessed with airplanes? Then this is the go-to park for your family because where else can they get up close and personal with small airplanes taking off or landing?

Playground at Spartanburg Airport Park

The big kid area is complete with a massive climbing structure, 3 slides, swings, a kid spinner, and a couple of learning stations too. This playground will keep the kids busy for a while!

Should your own little one need to stay a bit closer to the ground then they may prefer the playground specially designed for kids 2-5 years old. The little kid playground has another set of swings, a smaller climbing area with slides, and a couple of toddler size vehicles to climb on. And if you don’t feel like climbing the play structures or pushing your kid on the swings, each playground has a couple of benches perfect for parents.

Splash pad and Picnic Area

Not only does this park have 2 great playgrounds, but it also offers a couple of other things your family may enjoy as well! The aviation-themed splash pad is open for the summer and is sure to be a big hit on a hot day.

Want to spend the day? No problem! This park offers a covered picnic shelter and restrooms. With a vast 7-acre footprint, this park also includes a couple of soccer fields and ample green space to spread out and spend the day. Trust me, your kids won’t want to leave!

This is our new fun place to go! I have a 10 year old grandson and a 20 year old autistic friend. They both love it here! While they swing and play I can walk the path! They really love the water feature too! This is a really great park for young kids and older ones alike. Thank you Spartanburg for this nice addition!
