  • Very nice well maintained park. Plenty of places to sit around the splash pad while kids are playing. Nice facilities to change cloths, and great coverd play ground to play at also. A lot more to explore around the park, walking and bike trails, and who knows what else.
  • Great for park families. They have walking trails, biking trails, splash pad dog park, and picnic area with grill. There is something for everyone.
  • Really beautiful park and really well maintained. Had a company outing at the paw paw shelter. Great location and great facilities.
  • The new entrance on Saint Andrews Road made a huge difference from previous years to our visit. The updated lights made for a great time with the kids, and there are a few good activities for those looking for a break in the middle. The laser show was especially beautiful. This has been and looks to continue to be a great value for a good family outing during the holidays.
  • Great park. The kids love coming here. Splash Page is super fun. Good pavilions for parties/events. The lights at Christmas are a Columbia staple. A must do every year.
