Welcome to Greenwood
Greenwood is a community in the truest sense of the word. It is a place where people come together in collaboration, and great things happen! Teamwork and combined efforts mark every facet of Greenwood life—and they are the reason for Greenwood’s excellent healthcare, its responsive government, its quality schools and its energetic business community.
Greenwood’s great outdoors is one of splendor. Known for its majestic gardens and scenic lakes, it draws thousands of visitors each June to the South Carolina Festival of Flowers, where private and public gardens put on their best and welcome guests with true Southern hospitality.
