  • The canal has a neat selection of trails--one on top of the canal's bank, and one that runs along the river. Both are easily marked and well-kept.  more »
  • My wife and I undertook the walk along Riverfront park on a day where the weather was not too hot. It is a well maintained path, good signage and large enough for both walkers and cyclists (although w...  more »
  • The riverfront park is a great area for walks, relaxing and working our. Miles of trails and a weight training area with machines that use your body weight as the resistance. Good views of the river.  more »

  • Trails were closed today. The closer sign was a little ways inside park. It would be nice if the sign was actually in the parking area. People had taken bikes out of there vehicles and entered park. The sign was confusing. We did not understand what part park of closed. Would of been clearer if they closed the whole park for the day. Other wise i like the park and would recommend the park for a nice day.
  • For 11 years now we have enjoyed this beautiful park. It's dog friendly but bring a leash please, people are always excercising in their bikes or just running. It's perfect for a photo shoot. There is sufficient parking, it's free to enter. You may enjoy taking pictures of the nature, the old water park building or the the river and canal during different times of the year. Well kept, family friendly and safe. Always be respectful and keep it clean. You won't regret to be able to visit the park.
  • Had a great 5 miler there is morning. Always love running at the canal. Have enjoyed this place since the late 80's. Has changed a lot since that time. All for the better. Would recommend Riverfront Park to anyone looking to get outside and get some fresh air and exercise.
  • With plenty of parking for visitor's convenience, this park is a great place for daily walks. The area along the canal is beautiful and peaceful. A walk in this park takes you to a few historical sites with informative signs as well as the beauty of the Congaree River.
  • Very interesting place to visit. My fiance and I went for a walk around and we were really impressed with the views. Highly recommend this place for a nice stroll, and taking in history
