“Along the river in Columbia.”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 21, 2013

This is a great place to ride bikes or walk with your family. There are bathroom facilities. Often, festivals and celebrations are held here, especially in the spring and fall. It is difficult for wheelchairs, but not impossible. Construction has been taking place intermittently, so check the website in the city for info.

“Great for running”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 19, 2013 via mobile

The closest you can get to an outdoor running experience in town... Nice and calm and no traffic... Close to the water and with a sense of natural fresh air.. I enjoy running there..

“Nice walk but not much more”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed December 30, 2012

It's a beautiful place for a walk but normally pretty crowded and wild life, you won't see, unless walking under the interstate counts. One other note: Bikers and roller bladders allowed so beware!!!!!

“Great park”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 23, 2012

This is a great park just outside of the downtown core of Columbia. Loved the natural beauty of it and you can walk, run or ride your bike. Like how there are historical markers telling you about some of the history such as the remains of the first State prison, Columbus' statue and the pump house for the dam. The area was safe and the views were amazing. If your in Columbia this park is a must visit.

“Great park!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 20, 2012

Great place to take the dogs for a nice long walk. I love being able to visit the old pump house every time I go. The park is clean and I have never felt unsafe walking my dogs alone.
