The Tyger River Confluence
The Tyger River Confluence Park and Blueway Project builds upon previous work by The Tyger River Foundation, including restoring the historic Anderson Mill and providing multiple river access points, which were developed in partnership with the Tyger River Blueways Coalition and Spartanburg County Parks and Recreation.
The proposed project would cover 20 river miles and provide 10 hours of class I – IV paddling, 10 public park spaces, and the Tyger River Nature Center, located on the Foundation's property at the confluence of the North and South Tyger rivers. The Nature Center will serve as a regional destination for education, recreation, and event-based eco-tourism.
Upstate Forever — in Partnership with The Tyger River Foundation and consultant, Bolton and Menk, Inc. — are working to develop a master plan for this community-driven initiative. To learn more about this project, see the project overview.
