We are members of Saluda Shoals after one visit. It is the perfect place for biking, walking, birding, picnics, and tubing the river, and fishing.

What a fun way to spend a hot day with your grandkids! Make sure and pack their bathing suit...you might want to, too!

This park has so much to offer: beautiful wooded walking trails, a dog park, covered picnic areas, access to the river, a water playground (Splash Pad) in the summer, best Christmas light display in the winter, a wonderful education center, a conference center for weddings or banquets. The list goes on.

My family was visiting from IN with a 3 year old and we were frantically trying to locate fun places for him. Splash Park would be my #1 choice in the Columbia area. All the water thrills, spouts, climbing rock and rides were very entertaining. We really enjoyed watching the buckets of water dump onto the children and seeing their... More
