Saluda Shoals Park is one of the things I miss the most about not living in Columbia. We got a year pass through a Groupon promotion, and it was definitely worth it.

Attended a training session at Saluda Shoals Park. The facility is beautiful and an excellent place for a meeting. I plan on returning for a visit with the family.

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.

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.
