“Summer concert series”

We enjoy Finley Park in downtown Columbia.
They do a summer concert series where you can bring your own chairs, and there are some food vendors or you may bring your own. Free family fun!

Went to this park on a Sunday afternoon in October because of its waterfall feature seen on this site. The park itself is quite nice with the waterfall feature which is really cool and the swinging benches and large open green space for picnic or playing games. However, the homeless like to congregate here and the park didn't feel all that safe. As soon as we parked we had a homeless person approach us for money stating meter parking was free and we could give him the money instead. In another part of the park there were about 10 homeless people congregating on the stairs, so we avoided that area altogether as we were the only other people in the area.
The park itself is nice, however the people who make this their home would deter me from coming back and that is the only reason I can't give this park a better rating.

Big park, great grassy areas for playing frisbee or picnicking or what have you. Great playgrounds for children. But I wouldn't ever stay after dark. The homeless community often stays in/around Finley Park.

Used to like to visit the park and walk/sit among the waterfalls but haven't been lately. It was a good place for government employees to walk at lunch although the street people could be annoying and aggressive. Okay if I'm not alone but wouldn't like to go there otherwise due to it's past history. It is pretty though.
