Parks and recreation areas
- Foster Park
A large, attractive pond fills this park in Union, SC, which attracts plenty of ducks and geese. In addition to the walking path around the pond, a short nature trail leads off into the woods across the street.
- John D. Long Lake
This scenic undeveloped lake is open for public recreation. A spot near the dam has two picnic shelters overlooking the lake.
- Lockhart Canal
Plenty of grassy areas and some woods will be found along this canal and the Broad River in the historic town of Lockhart. You can walk up and down the canal for some nice views. Swimming and boating are permitted in the river, but not in the canal.
