  • If you wish to honor and understand the sacrifices made by our fellow South Carolinians, this is a good place to start. From the massive wall of honor at the highest point of the park to the Viet Nam ...  more »

  • This place is pretty small, but some of the memorials are cool. There were lots of dogs there, some unleashed, so it's definitely dog friendly.
  • Great landscaping and beautiful memorials. The Holocaust memorial was particularly moving. The WW1 and Korean War memorials were also exceptional. I recommend visiting there if your a Columbian or just someone visiting the city. There was no one there when I went (except a guy I assume was a city employee), which made me slightly uneasy. Go there in the middle of the day. I also noticed a case of vandalism at the WW1 memorial.
  • The park has monuments for a lot, if not all, of the military conflicts that South Carolina has been involved in the twentieth and twenty-first centuries. The monuments are really neat and the park is well laid out. There's plenty of free parking as well. However, while walking through the WWI trench, we came across a homeless person's camp site, complete with a urine-soaked cardboard mat, several empty 40s, and a huge smelly pile of human feces. It ruined the experience for me.
  • A quiet green space in the city to honor those who fought for our freedom.
  • Beautiful and very serene! Very Befitting for this Memorial Weekend!
