“A breath of fresh air for you and your family.”
Reviewed July 24, 2013

This park has expanded and provides an opportunity for everyone. Walking, biking, canoeing, parties, small children's water park, picnics, and special activities, what more could you want from an ecological park? When I was younger I rollerbladed and bicycled every square inch of this park. Now there are more walking paths than before. My grandchildren enjoyed the learning center. This is a great place to get fresh air, walk, run, etc, or just have a great family time.

“Quality family time”
Reviewed July 7, 2013 via mobile

I enjoy taking my boys here when I'm up visiting my family. We play in the spray ground, hike the trails and play in the river. Great way to spend a day. Beautiful scenery and enough to keep the kids, young and teen aged, from getting bored.

“Nice park for kids”
Reviewed July 1, 2013

I took my nieces and nephew here last week and they had a good time. The Splash zone area and playground area was nice and they had a great time. The cost was less than what I was expecting. We would definitely go back.

“Nice outdoor area”
Reviewed June 26, 2013

We went there to fish the river when we first moved to Columbia, We saw a couple of snakes on the banks of the river. Most people should have enough sense to know that snakes would be on the river, but we saw a lot of people (children and animals with them) just "trompsing" down the path without a care in the world. Just because you are in a park, doesn't mean they keep the nature creatures away. It's a nice area, nice facilities, but on the trails and river, I thought that people could be a little more careful.
