GREENVILLE, SC (FOX Carolina) -

Greenville is getting some national attention for Falls Park near the Reedy River. 

TripAdvisor named Falls Park one of the top 10 city parks in the country.

Greenville is ranked the ninth best park in the country, and it's up there along with parks in New York, Chicago and San Francisco.

Falls Park will celebrate its 10th anniversary next year. It was opened in 2004.

"Every square inch of this park was carefully and well designed," said Greenville Mayor Knox White.

White said the experience as people walk through the park was important during the planning stages and they wanted to make sure everyone had a special view in the park from every angle.

"Having the waterfall was great enough," White said. "But putting the pedestrian bridge over the falls, was so people could have a better look at it. That's why its there."

It's a move that has led many people to feel relieved anytime they step foot in Falls Park.

Greenville has 544 reviews so far on TripAdvisor's website with 455 of them being excellent and 84 being very good.
