It was a great Saturday afternoon till we decided to take our 5 yo daughter to Saluda Shoals Splash Pad which also located in the park. Restroom by the Splash Pad was nasty, no air conditioner.

My wife and I love taking our dog down the riverfront path. Lots of places for him to safely play in the water. Everyone is always extremely nice. Christmas lights are a must if you're a local.

This is a wonderful park located in a wooded but well manicured location. We had food catered in and the family enjoyed the quaintness of the park's location. There was a trail you could walk to sight-see and explore. I love the outdoors and this was a little romantic like get away for some quiet time walking along the trail.... More

Beautiful park. Lots of nice walking trails. They have a giant acorn along one of the paths. The paths go along a river. They have a really nice playground for the kids with a splash pad. The park is very clean and well maintained.

We go every year at least once to see the light display. You drive around and listen to music as you see the spectacular sights. A stop at the snow tubing area then a hot chocolate with roasted marshmallows has become our family tradition. Very affordable and it sets the tone for our holiday season.

Saluda Shoals Park is a great place for a nice easy mountain bike ride. Much of the place is paved but a few off road areas exist. Me and my wife love going there as she is not as hard core with the mountain biking as I am. Perfect in the cooler months before winter hits.

We had our company gatherings there twice and each time I enjoyed the facility although I have to travel a distance to get there.
