CONGAREE PARK

neighborhood

The Congaree Park neighborhood combines stunning, large homes and some of the best views the Columbia area has to offer along with a scenic walking and biking route right in your backyard. The new, gated development in West Columbia is on the banks of the Congaree River overlooking the Vista and downtown Columbia.

The custom-built homes are positioned to take full advantage of the waterfront location, many with large porches and decks, the perfect spot for entertaining or enjoying a drink or dinner as the sun sets over downtown Columbia. There is a landscaped entrance, common area greenspace and a security fence surrounding the neighborhood. The community offers easy access through private gates to the Three Rivers Greenway and West Columbia and Cayce Riverwalk Park.

The Riverwalk is a huge draw that brings walkers, runners and bicyclists to the paved and wooden walkway that hugs the river. The amphitheater near the base of the Gervais Street bridge offers free concerts in the summer and fall, along with other theater productions. And West Columbia’s location on the Congaree is a big draw for people interested in kayaking and tubing along the quick-moving river.

RECREATION & PARKS

Just outside the back gates from Congaree Park is the West Columbia and Cayce Riverwalk, a paved and wooden walkway with picnic areas, benches and lighted trails that runs along the Congaree River. It’s just a short walk to the outdoor amphiteater, where you’ll find concerts and theater productions (and even an occasional wedding ceremony). The Congaree River is popular for fishing, along with kayaking, canoeing and water tubing, with entry and exit points on the river close to the neighborhood.

Carraway Park at the Riverwalk is popular with families, and features a large picnic shelter and an all-inclusive playground. Each Saturday, vendors sell their wares at the pavilion at the Meeting Street Artisan Market, or you can zip across the river for Soda City market each Saturday on Columbia’s Main Street.

Riverbanks Zoo and Gardens is one of the country’s top zoos, with the botanical gardens easily accessible just 2.5 miles from the neighborhood through an entrance on Botanical Parkway in West Columbia. Just across the bridge, less than a mile from the neighborhood, you’ll find the State Museum and Edventure, Columbia’s popular children’s museum.

what’s in a name

Congaree Park gets its name from its location on the banks of Congaree River, a 50-mile long river that passes near downtown Columbia on its way to Congaree National Park, South Carolina’s only national park.
