You can spend a relatively-inexpensive day at the zoo simply strolling around and enjoying all of the amazing sections and creatures, admire the extensive botanical gardens, play in the splash park, catch a event...
In addition to great exhibits and educational programs, a ropes course, two fantastic ziplines, a water park, a mini train, a carousel and a rock wall provide fun for everyone.
#2 of 13 Nature & Parks in Columbia
There are trails, fishing, tubing, a new playground, a water park, eco tours and bird watching, classes of all kinds, an outdoor stage for plays and music and much more.
Lot's of fun seasonal activities, a nice slice of river and an attractive park with walking trails makes Saluda Shoals a great destination.

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.
We walked about two miles past the park, and still found everything to be wonderfully maintained -- highly recommend!

Nature, Nature and more Nature, perfect for a weekend afternoon, where you want to get away from the Weekday hassles and want to commune with nature or just relax in the quiet walk along the River
If you get the chance to cross the bridge and park in the parking lot on the Gervais/Columbia side at sunset you can catch a breathtaking sight.

6. Park closes at 4:30 during winter months....so you have to end the serenity early! Park has great bike/hike trails and restrooms.
Good day hikes, biking, and nature walks.

From the massive wall of honor at the highest point of the park to the Viet Nam soldier and his patrol Shepherd to the Jewish memorial for WWII to the Korean War soldier on the corner there is so much to take in.

Whether you are visiting Columbia or live here, make sure to stop by this beautiful park in the city.
Amazing Views of the park and the city from all angles.
#1 of 4 Nature & Parks in Cayce
Columbia has many fantastic paved trails but, for me, I like a more primitive trail and more of a feel of nature, which is exactly what this park gives.
The preserve provides an easy escape to nature while giving the ease and comfort of a sidewalk stroll.
