Sad. The park used to be a great place to walk during the day. My friends got married here, but the city hasn't kept up the water feature. Grass is over watered and patchy. Parking is not sufficient for large events.
Park has definitely gone down hill. We are from PA stopping through on our way to FL and decided to take a stroll with our two little kids and were beyond disappointed. Homeless people everywhere, feels unsafe. No playground for the kids, dirty. DO NOT GO HERE!
This park was once a beautiful vibrant park with walkways, playground, fountains, concerts and lovely open spaces. It is now run down, and in some parts dangerous because it has not been maintained.

Such a lovely part right in the middle of Columbia and something always going on! Concerts, community fairs and activities, movies - the list is long and varied as are the people who frequent this unique attraction.
While preparing for our trip to Columbia, I researched different places to visit. Of course, Finlay Park on was our list. We went to see the beautiful fountain, but instead, found the fountain not on, and it didn't seem very safe.
The fountains and waterfalls were not on. Huge disappointment for the kids. Difficult to navigate with a stroller. Hangout for the local homeless. Nice swinging benches but most had a homeless person on them so we couldn't use them as we needed two side by side, The view of the city was nice from the park. Good picture opportunities.
Very peaceful setting. While traveling I had all my days free. Great place to just visit and relax if the heat was not so bad would have stayed longer
