This falls is in a garden and is actually the site of a pre-Civil War granite quarry. You can still see the drill marks on the rocks from when it was a quarry. The site has been adopted by the Greenville Garden Club and is a popular location for outdoor weddings and photography. Spring flowering plants, including dogwood trees and native azaleas, are a highlight of this garden.
Rock Quarry Falls is in Cleveland Park and is easily accessed. The stream drops 10 feet into a pool at the base. The stream running through the quarry is from a spring on Spring Street that provided water for many of the city's early settlers.
