The shoals at Cedar Falls were used to power local mills and in the 1820s to generate electrical power. Today it’s a little-known local swimming hole with cascading waterfalls dumping into numerous pools. That’s about to change though, as the park receives a $2.7 million makeover thanks to funds left over from the cleanup of a 1996 oil spill, the largest ever in South Carolina, which dumped more than a million gallons of diesel fuel into the Reedy River. Cedar Falls is maintained by the Greenville County Recreation District and will include canoe launches, picnic shelters, and a fishing pier.
