Riverfront Park & Historic Columbia Canal

This 167-acre park was the site of the original waterworks for the City of Columbia. This was also the site of the world's first electrically operated textile mill and the hydroelectric plant, the oldest one in the state, is still operating. A popular jogging/walking trail runs two and one half miles along the linear park and offers wonderful views of the river. There is also a beautiful brick amphitheater as well as a self guided walkway by the old parts of the water plant. The park hosts several events annually such as Riverfest, Greekfest and several smaller concerts.
