The Unity Park Honor Tower is fully funded. Mayor Knox White announced a $1 million donation from Vivian Wong and her late husband Thomas Wong, marking one of Unity Park’s largest donations to date.

The Thomas and Vivian A. Wong Honor Tower will be built just south of the Reedy River between what used to be two segregated parks — Mayberry and Meadowbrook. The City will break ground on the tower in early 2023.

The 125-foot tower will offer panoramic views of Greenville from its observation deck and will honor law enforcement, firefighters, the military, utility crews, medics, EMS, and public health workers, with a plaza at the tower’s base featuring memorials and tributes.
