Five youth soccer fields are the culmination of the overall soccer facility plans at USC Upstate. When not being used for youth soccer events for the American Youth Soccer Organization teams and Classic Soccer organizations, USC Upstate soccer teams use the fields for practice, intramural sports, band and athletic camps, and other recreational purposes on the campus. In coordination with Spartanburg County, USC Upstate is a host site for regular season games at the five youth soccer fields, exposing the campus to countless visitors from around the county.
A large, formal park located in the center of one of Spartanburgs older neighborhoods, Duncan Park provides both active and passive recreation facilities, including a large lake and former minor league stadium as its two biggest attractions.
This 102.53-acre community park includes mountain bike trails, the historic Duncan Park baseball stadium, a pond, walking trails, and much more.
North Spartanburg Park was renovated in 2011/2012 to provide space for local league play in baseball/softball, as well as assisting in the hosting of regional and national youth sports tournaments. North Spartanburg Park also is home to the Carolina Miracle League, which provides sports and recreation experiences for children with disabilities. Further improvements to the park are planned, such as a perimeter exercise trail, more picnic areas, and other amenities.
