  • Well maintained with overlooks and seating along the way. Also places to enjoy down by the river near the restrooms, make for a good picnic area (maybe plan that next time)  more »
  • This park was so pretty! I wish we had wore our family photo clothes. The trees were so nice with the fall colors. The River was a nice backdrop for a fall walk.  more »

  • We stopped by for a short visit and enjoyed walking along the path, stopping at the fitness park, crossing the bridge, touring the canal house building, and going down by the river. There were these beautiful red doors that made for an amazing photo opportunity. In fact, we saw a couple getting engagement photos here. The bridge would make for a good photo too. Lots of birds, the blooms were starting, and it was just very peaceful. A nice place for a nice walk.
  • Its a great place to come relax with your family or by yourself. The restrooms are clean at all times. I love riding my bike from the broad river entrance into the down town river front. This is truly a SC hidden gem!
