  • The canal is not all that dramatic, but the toe path has been paved so a great place for a very pleasant walk, run or bike ride.  more »
  • My wife and I took the dog there to enjoy the sunshine and scenery. We had never been there before and wanted to see something new. The park was beautiful, especially the rivers. It was a little crowd...  more »
  • Great place to walk, picknick, and see some great concerts. Many people take their dogs for walks here and there are many bicyclists to share the experience with.  more »

  • It is a great place to go. If you want to see all three of the rivers. If you want to take your dog for a walk or if you must want to walk. It is 2.5 miles from the front of the park to the end. Great place to exercise. People ride bikes and make it a family affair I like going and would recommend it to everyone.
  • Beautiful! Excellent park along the rivers with plenty of views and resting spots. The sound of the rushing waters is very peaceful. A must see if you are visiting Columbia or live in the area...a jewel for sure. Thank you Parks and Recreation!
  • Very scenic and well kept park. Popular site for photography. We had a portion of our engagement photos done here. People who live along it also put out water dished for dogs! Excellent place for walking/exercise.
  • Great place to fish. Caught my first small mouth bass from here. Loved the hiking and wading through the water and climbing rocks.
  • It is described as a river walk. It is more like a river trail. Great trail for walking along the river and a few outdoor features. This is not a river walk like the San Antonio river walk. There are no restaurants and shops.
