Finlay Park

One of the best known parks in the state, Finlay has hosted just about everything from festivals and political rallies to road races and Easter Sunrise services. It serves as the site for such events as Kids Day, The Summer Concert Series, plus many more activities. The park is named for Kirkman Finlay, Mayor of Columbia who had a vision to reenergize the area known as the Vista, between Main Street and the river. A statue of Finlay has been placed in the park, showing him sitting on a bench.
