“Avoid at all costs!! ”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 24 April 2014 via mobile

It is april 24th 2014. My husband and I just left there and it was awful! The nice pics are not accurate. No fountains, bad parking, numerous people warned us not to be there after dark. There is nothing to do there.

“Nice Park”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 8 April 2014

Love the skyline from the top of the park- definitely bring your camera. The swings are nice to enjoy the beautiful weather. On a busy day there might not be enough parking at the top in the parking lot. On a good many occasions to this park, I have been hit up for money by homeless, so be prepared for that.

“Beautiful Park”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 16 March 2014

This is without a doubt one place anyone visiting Columbia should see. No matter how busy it is you can still find a quiet spot to reflect and enjoy and it seems there is always some type of even going on in which you can get involved. Just a beautiful and enjoyable place for sure.

“Neat example of what an urban green space could be”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 17 November 2013

The park is the only thing that we saw in Columbia. It is a neat example of what an urban green space could be. Although beware of the many steps that you will take up and down strolling through. But nevertheless, a great spot to unwind, all in the middle of downtown Columbia.
