The Greenville Revitalization Corporation (GRC) announced today that it has received a grant from The Jolley Foundation to be used for the construction of the children’s playground at the Textile Heritage Park. Currently, the GRC is constructing the Textile Heritage Park, which is located across from Monaghan Mill. The park will honor Greenville’s textile heritage and remember the life in the old mill villages while providing much needed recreational space to the community.
Douglas Dent, CEO of GRC stated: “This generous and timely gift from the Jolley Foundation will ensure the completion of the second phase of our Textile Heritage Park. This phase will provide needed recreation for the children of the area and announce to the public that we will be open for business soon.”
Duff Bruce of the Jolley Foundation said: “The Jolley Foundation Board feels that Textile Heritage Park will honor Greenville’s industrial past and provide a recreational area for the Monaghan neighborhood. We are encouraged by the GRC’s efforts and support they have received.”

It was established in 2012 as a 501 (c) (3) tax-exempt organization by the Greenville County Redevelopment Authority.
